CE-markingCE marking is an important part of EU's product legislation and covers, among others, construction products, electrical products, machinery, toys and personal protective equipment.
The health and safety requirements set for the products are specified in EC directives. The manufacturer confirms that the safety requirements have been met by setting up a declaration of conformity and placing a CE mark on the product. It can then be marketed in the common market.
In some cases, the manufacturer must use the services of a notified body to verify that the product complies with requirements. Depending on the product, the notified body carries out type testing and/or inspections of the manufacturers continuous quality control. The notified body then issues a certificate or a report, which the manufacturer can refer to in his/hers declaration of conformity.
