The CE mark is a declaration by the manufacturer that their product meets the essential requirements of relevant EU directives and regulations, and that it has undergone the appropriate conformity assessment procedures. The CE mark is typically affixed to the product or its packaging, and it signifies that the product complies with the applicable health, safety, and environmental protection requirements set forth in EU legislation.
The CE mark is required for a wide range of products, including but not limited to:
- Electrical and electronic equipment
- Machinery and mechanical equipment
- Medical devices
- Personal protective equipment
- Construction products
- Pressure vessels
- Radio and telecommunications equipment
- Simple pressure vessels
- Lifts and escalators
It’s important to note that the specific requirements for obtaining and affixing the CE mark may vary depending on the type of product and the applicable EU directive or regulation. Manufacturers are responsible for ensuring that their products comply with all relevant requirements and undergo the appropriate conformity assessment procedures before affixing the CE mark and placing their products on the market within the EEA. Therefore, it’s essential to consult with the appropriate regulatory authorities or seek professional legal or technical advice to ensure compliance with the relevant regulations. Also, please note that as regulations and directives change over time, it’s important to verify the most up-to-date requirements when seeking to affix the CE mark on a product.
