What is CE certification?
CE certification (also referred to as CE conformity assessment procedure) of a (non-food) product is a process that (after its completion) affirms the right to affix a CE marking to this (non-food) product. By affixing the CE marking a manufacturer indicates that his product complies with the relevant European product legislation, in regard to safety, health and environment. Before affixing the CE marking, the manufacturer carries out a conformity assessment, compiles the technical documentation, and draws up an EU Declaration of Conformity.
CE marking in six steps
The CE conformity assessment procedure consists of 6 steps:
- choose your role as economic operator (manufacturer, Authorized Representative, distributor, fulfilment service provider);
- identify the applicable EU product directives;
- perform a risk analysis and identify the essential safety requirements and relevant European (harmonised) standards;
- carry out the conformity assessment procedure (product tests, verifications, inspections);
- compile the Technical Documentation (including safety information, such as instruction manual, labels and marking), and have it assessed, if necessary, by a Notified Body;
- draw up an EU Declaration of Conformity and affix the CE mark.
