CE Marking

To market products in the European Union, they must meet the technical and safety criteria established in various European regulations and directives. In the European Union, manufacturers or their representatives are responsible for their products meeting the applicable requirements and should indicate their product's conformity using the CE mark.
Many products fall within the scope of one or more European directives, and at times it can be difficult for the manufacturer or importer to identify the appropriate directives, testing and steps to take before CE marking their product.
