To access the European market, gas-fired appliances must bear the CE mark indicating compliance with the safety requirements stipulated in the European regulations, in order to guarantee a high level of protection for the health and safety of persons, domestic animals and property, as well as a rational use of energy.
The 2009/142/CE Directive expires as of April 21, 2018. From that date, the Regulation (EU) 2016/416 on appliances burning gaseous fuels will come into effect.
Before applying the CE mark, manufacturers or their representatives in the EU must guarantee their product's safety and conformity through a testing and certification process that requires the intervention of a European Union Notified Body.
