CE Marking: yes or no?

The vast majority of the products sold in Europe must meet the CE product safety requirements. To demonstrate that a product is safe for the user, CE marking is required. The CE marking indicates that the product has been tested and deemed safe to be placed on the European market.

The CE Marking is affixed to products that meet all the legal CE requirements. The requirements vary based on the risks that a product may pose. More information about products which must bear the CE marking can be found here. 

But what if a product is not covered by the CE? Besides the CE marking, products can be subject to the General Product Safety Directive. There are also guidelines and regulations for specific product categories which are not included in the CE marking (for example cosmetics). If you are unsure whether your product requires CE marking, feel free to get in touch.
