CE Marking

Published 06-10-2010
We often see the CE marking on some of the products we buy, but what does it really mean? Under the slogan "CE marking makes Europe's market yours!" the European Commission and EFTA have launched an information campaign on the CE marking.

The CE marking indicates that a product is in compliance with all relevant EEA legislation, making it eligible to be marketed and sold throughout the EEA. By affixing the CE marking on a product, a manufacturer is declaring, on his sole responsibility, conformity with all relevant legal requirements, in particular those ensuring health, safety, and environmental protection. Legal and economic repercussions of non-conformity abuses are so great that they will deter the vast majority of legitimate businesses from not respecting these laws. This campaign is directed primarily at economic operators to raise their awareness and understanding of the CE marking.
