CE Marking is a declaration by the manufacturer that the product meets all the appropriate provisions of the relevant legislation implementing applicable European Directives. CE Marking gives companies easier access into the European market to sell their products without adaptation or rechecking. The CE certification is applicable to the products like machines, pumps, valves, all pressure equipment, electrical items and medical devices etc. The initials “CE” are declaration by the manufacturer that his product meets the requirements of the applicable European Directive(s).
If you are a manufacturer, first assess the applicable Directive applies to your product. CE Marking only applies to products within the scope of these Directives. It should not be applied to products, if they are outside the scope of the Directives.
If you are manufacturer and are planning to export a product, which falls within the scope of the markets in any of the member states of the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) then it is necessary that you apply for CE Marking of your products against the essential requirements of all the applicable directives. Please note that CE Mark is a mandatory mark for most (around 70%) of the products sold on the EU market (totaling 28 countries).
The New Approach Directives will provide a range of compliance routes for your product and show you, usually in a modular format, the available routes to compliance. You must then decide which route fits the best for your company set-up, and follow that route as detailed in the Directive. In many cases the compliance route will require you to use a Notified Body to assist with your certification. The essential requirements of the New Approach Directives differ from directive to directive and product to product. If the new product directives apply to your products and you want to continue to export to the European market (or introduce new products) then CE Marking will be crucial to your success.
