– Explosives for civil uses
– Lifts
– Low voltage equipment
– Machinery safety

– Medical devices: In vitro diagnostic
– New hot-water boilers fired with liquid or gaseous fluids (efficiency requirements)
– Non-automatic weighing instruments
– Packaging and packaging waste
– Personal protective equipment
– Pressure equipment
– Radio and telecommunications terminal equipment
– Recreational craft
– Simple pressure vessels
– Toys safety

If your product falls under one or more of the above groups, it must be CE marked before it can be traded in the EEA. If you are unsure whether your product requires CE marking, send us a message. We are happy to help you determine the route to compliance.
