If the CE Mark exists on a product, then it assures that the product has met the specification mentioned by the corresponding European Standards. CE Consultant Mark Compliance is legal requirement imposed by the European Union Member States and European Economic Area Countries.

Unfortunately, there is no comprehensive list of the products that require a CE marking. Therefore, it is the manufacturer’s responsibility to determine if a product requires a CE marking. The “New Approach Directives” are documents that contain the legislation issued by the European Commission on the requirements that need to be met and procedures that must be followed in order for a particular product to be CE marked for sales in the EU.
