CE Marking

What is CE Marking ?

CE stands for the French acronym  "Conformité Européenne" and it’s a regulatory marking symbolising that the products sold in the European market meets the health, safety and environmental requirements as desired by the European Union.  

CE Marking on a product indicates that the manufacturer has proven compliance against the applicable directives and standards published in the “Official Journal of European Union”.

By applying CE Marking on the product & issuing an “EU Declaration of Conformity” one assures his product to be sold freely in any part of the European Economic Area (EEA) irrespective of its country of origin.

Why CE Marking is required?

CE Marking is a mandatory requirement for products to be sold in the European Economic Area (EEA). CE marked products shall meet the set of regulations published by the European Union (EU) known as directives such as Machinery Directive (MD)-2006/42/EC, Low Voltage Directive (LVD) - 2014/35/EU, Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive (EMC) - 2014/30/EU, Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) - 2015/863. To comply with these directives one can take help of harmonised standards published in the “Official Journal of European Union”. By complying with relevant directives and harmonised standards one can make sure that his product is safe for user and environment and can ensure free movements of his products in the European Union.

The responsibility of affixing the CE marking on the products lies on the organisation placing it on the European Market. It can be Manufacturer himself, his authorised representative, importer, distributor or any other person or an organization.
