CE Marking

The CE marking is a key indicator (but not proof) of a product’s compliance through European Union (EU) health, safety and environmental protection directives and regulations.If your product comes under the scope of a directive requiring CE marking you must ensure the product complies with the applicable requirements or fulfil the requirement of harmonized standard and affix the CE mark(Standard logo) before placing it in the market in the European Economic Area (EEA). Often the CE marking is described as a trade passport because it enables the free movement of products within the European market.
