What is CE Marking ?
The letters ‘CE’ appear on many products that are traded
on the single market in the European Economic Area (EEA).
The CE marking is required for many products. CE Marking shows
that the manufacturer has checked that these products meet EU safety, health or environmental
requirements. CE Marking is an indicator of a product’s compliance with EU legislation. CE Marking
allows the free movement of products within the European market. By placing the CE marking on a product
a manufacturer is declaring, on his sole responsibility, conformity with all of the legal requirements to
achieve CE marking. The manufacturer is thus ensuring validity for that product to be sold throughout the EEA.
This also applies to products made in third countries which are sold in the EEA and Turkey.
CE marking does not mean that a product was made in the EEA, but states that the product
is assessed before being placed on the market. It means the product satisfies the legislative requirements to be
sold there. It means that the manufacturer has checked that the product complies with all relevant essential
requirements, for example health and safety requirements.
