CE marking is a special mark applied to a product, which certifies that the product complies with the basic requirements of the EU directives and harmonized standards of the European Union, and also that the product has passed the procedure for assessing compliance with directives. CE marking indicates that the product is not harmful (hazardous) to the health of its consumers, and also environmentally friendly.
What are the benefits of CE certification?
A manufacturer using the CE marking on his product declares that the product meets all the necessary requirements (technical specifications and standards) and can sell its goods and services in Europe.
Products bearing the CE mark can be sold in the European Economic Area without any barriers, and consumers are confident that the products they buy comply with all basic health, safety and environmental requirements. The manufacturer is responsible for conducting conformity assessment of products, preparing technical files, obtaining CE markings, if necessary, drawing up a declaration of conformity with the EU and applying CE marking on goods.
