CE Marking

Access to the European Union market, the world's largest market

To market products in the European Union, they must meet the technical and safety criteria established in the various European 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 are within the scope of one or more European directives, and at times it can be difficult for the manufacturer or importer to identify the directives, testing and phases to be performed before placing the CE marking on their product.
