Who is responsible for affixing the CE marking?


When a product is required to bear a CE marking, it is the manufacturer’s obligation to affix the marking to the product. By doing so, the manufacturer will confirm the product’s compliance with the health and safety requirements of the European Union.

In case a product is manufactured outside the EU and is placed on the European market by an importer, it is not the manufacturer, but the importer who is responsible for affixing the CE marking. The importer will, by doing so, confirm that the product is safe in accordance with the European legislation.
