CE MARK Certification

The CE marking is a conformity marking consisting of the letters "CE", and taking the form as shown here. CE is an abbreviation for 'Conformity European', French for 'European Conformity'.

The CE marking symbolizes that a product it is affixed to is in conformity with all relevant essential requirements of the European technical regulations ("Directives"), and that the product compliance has been established using the appropriate conformity assessment procedure(s). The assessential requirements are requirements related to product safety, public health and consumer protection.


CE marking is obligatory for any product covered by one or more of the European technical regulations requiring the affixing of the CE marking. Without the CE marking, these products are not allowed to be placed or to be put into service in Europe. In this regard, the CE marking sometimes is called a trade passport, because like carrying a passport when entering a country, the CE Marking is required for market access.

The need of CE Marketing

The European CE certification procedure has been mainly set up to:

→ Harmonize all varying national regulations for consumer and industrial products in European Member States, so that the Single Market is encouraged
→ Bring about cost savings for producers;
→ Enhance the safety of products;
→ Supply public bodies with a uniform procedure that can be checked.
→ With the help of the conformity assessment procedures, the authorities can ascertain that the products that are placed on the market comply with the requirements as stated in the regulations of the directives. The CE marking is consequently largely for the benefit of the authorities. However, safe products are also necessary for the end user in the work or consumer environment.

What are the benefits of CE Marketing?

The CE Marking is a kind of trade passport for the European marketplace: it allows the manufacturer to freely circulate their product throughout the 18 countries of the European Economic Area (EEA).

There is only one set of requirements and procedures to comply with in designing and manufacturing a product for the entire EEA. Various conflicting national regulations are eliminated. As a result, the product no longer needs to be adapted to the specific requirements of the different member states of the EEA.

In addition, it may be considered a benefit that by implementing the requirements, the product will be safer for the user and this may also reduce damage and liability claims.

The CE Marking is not required for the following types of products:

→ Chemicals
→ Pharmaceuticals
→ Cosmetics
→ Foodstuffs
