CE Marking Pdf

CE Marking for Industrial Products

Ensure compliance and safety while accessing world markets.


The European Union has the largest economy in the world, with a GDP of 13.4trillion USD (2005). In 2006, there were 492 million Europeans in the 27 countries. Accessing this market is obviously vital for most companies’ success. 

Managing and overcoming these technical barriers to trade through determining what directives and standards apply, which conformity assessment route to take, is an arduous, yet vital task.

What is CE Marking?

By affixing the CE marking, the manufacturer assures that the item meets all the essential requirements of all applicable EU directives.  

Examples of European Directives requiring CE marking include pressure equipment, toy safety, medical devices, machinery, low-voltage equipment, R&TTE (Radio and Terminal Telecommunication Equipment), and Electromagnetic compatibility.

  • The CE marking symbolizes the conformity of the product with the applicable Community requirements imposed on the manufacturer. 

  • The CE marking is mandatory and must be affixed before any product subject to it is placed on the market and put into service, save where specific directives require otherwise.

What are the key benefits?

  • Access the world's second largest importer

  • Working with a Compliance Provider from project concept helps reduce project life cycle time scales and budget

  • Combining CE marking with other certifications such as CB Scheme, USA/Canada Safety Certification,CCC, GOST-R, etc. can further reduce time scales and costs.
