CE Mark

The CE mark on a product specifies that the manufacturer or importer of that product confirms its compliance with the applicable EU legislation and the product may be sold anywhere in the European Economic Area (EEA). For some products that are being sold within the European Economic Area (EEA) it is a mandatory requirement that they have a CE marking.

The CE marking represents a manufacturer’s declaration that his products comply with the highest health, safety and environmental protection standards for products that are being sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). This does not only apply to products that are sold within the EU but also for products that are manufactured in or intended to be sold in the EEA.

The abbreviation “CE” stands for “Conformité Européene” and translated means “European Conformity”.

The CE marking is not a requirement for each product that is being traded in the EEA. It only applies to the products that are subject to the applicable directives.
