What is CE-marking?

CE-marking is a certification mark that must be legally affixed to products that must be in compliance with the essential requirements out of the European New Approach Directives. ‘CE’ stands for ‘Conformité Européenne’. With the mark, the manufacturer, his authorized representative or the importer ( also for products imported from outside the European Union) indicate that the product meets the legal requirements described in the applicable directive (s). All products bearing the CE-marking have free access to the entire market within the European Economic Area (EEA). Products that are not in compliance with the essential requirements out of the European Directives and further have no CE-marking, can not be legally traded within the EEA.
