What is CE Marking?

European Legislation requires manufacturers to display CE Marking on their product, packaging and any accompanying literature (with few exceptions)

Wellkang Tech Consulting explain as follows:
The letters “CE” are the abbreviation of French phrase “Conformité Européene” which means “European Conformity”. The term initially used was “EC Mark” and it was officially replaced by “CE Marking” in the Directive 93/68/EEC in 1993. “CE Marking” is now used in all EU official documents.

  1. CE Marking on a product is a manufacturer’s declaration that the product complies with the essential requirementsof the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation, in practice by many of the so-called Product Directives.*

*Product Directives contains the “essential requirements” and/or “performance levels” and “Harmonized Standards” to which the products must conform. Harmonized Standards are the technical specifications (European Standards or Harmonization Documents) which are established by several European standards agencies (CEN, CENELEC, etc).

CEN stands for European Committee for Standardization.
CENELEC stands for European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization.

  1. CE Marking on a product indicates to governmental officials that the product may be legally placed on the marketin their country.
  2. CE Marking on a product ensures the free movement of the productwithin the EFTA & European Union (EU) single market.
