What is the difference between CE approval and CE marking for EU Directives?

Clients often ask about how we can assist with CE approval. However, the word ‘approval’ is not correct, since the CE mark is not an approval to market your product. Rather, it is a symbol affixed to your product labeling to indicate that it does in fact meet the requirements of the applicable European Directive(s). 

While we can not ‘approve’ your product for the market, we can help you obtain the CE mark quickly and efficiently. Our experts provide assistance throughout the entire CE marking process by identifying the applicable directives, carrying out testing if necessary, compiling a technical file and drafting the declaration of conformity.
