CE Marking Consultants
CE marking is a key indicator of a products compliance with EU legislation and enables the free movement of products within the European market. By affixing the CE marking on a product, a manufacturer is declaring, on his sole responsibility, conformity with all of the legal requirements to achieve CE marking and therefore ensuring validity for that product to be sold throughout the European Economic Area (EEA, the 27 Member States of the EU and EFTA countries Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein), as well as Turkey. This also applies to products made in third countries which are sold in the EEA and Turkey.
It is the manufacturers responsibility to carry out the conformity assessment, to set up the technical file, to issue the EC declaration of conformity and to affix CE marking on a product. Distributors must verify the presence of both the CE marking and the necessary supporting documentation. If the product is being imported from a third country, the importer has to verify that the manufacturer outside the EU has undertaken the necessary steps and that the documentation is available upon request.
CE Marking Beneficial for your Business
CE Marking was introduced by the European Union to make trade easier and cheaper between European countries. By introducing CE Marking, a manufacturer claims that their product conforms to the set of minimum legal requirements in reference to health and safety. With the increasing popularity of CE marking, customers often look for CE mark on the product that they are willing to purchase, as an indication of fulfilling the requirements of minimum standards.
Various types of conflicting national regulations are eradicated with the introduction of CE Marking to your product. If your product is CE marked then you do not need to adapt various set of requirements of the different member states of the EEA. CE Marking not only brings cost savings for producers, but it also enhances the safety of products.
