What is CE Marking?
The CE marking is a key indicator of a product's compliance with EU (European Union) legislation and enables the free movement of products within the European market. By affixing the CE marking on a product, a manufacturer is declaring, at their sole responsibility, conformity with all of the legal requirements to achieve CE marking and therefore ensuring validity for that product to be sold throughout the EEA - European Economic Area. This also applies to products made in third countries which are sold in the EEA. CE marking does not indicate that a product was made in the EEA but states only that the product has been assessed before being placed on the market and thus satisfies the legislative requirements (e.g. a harmonized level of safety) to be sold there. It means that the manufacturer has verified that the product complies with all relevant essential requirements (such as safety, health, environmental protection requirements) of the applicable directive(s) or, if stipulated in the directive(s), has had it examined by a notified conformity assessment body. However, not all products must bear the CE marking. Only those product categories subject to specific directives that provide for the CE marking are required to be CE-marked.
The role of a Notified Body in CE marking
Where a Directive or Regulation requires products or systems to be independently tested, certified or inspected you will need to use the services of a Notified Body. This is an organization that has been notified to the European Commission by a Member State.
