Importance of CE Mark
CE marking is an important procedure that guarantees product’s conformity to EU regulations. Manufacturers, importers and distributors of non-food products are obligatory to provide the CE marking if they want to trade on EU/EAA markets.
However, not all products are obligatory to have the CE marking. It is related only to products that are mentioned in the Directive(s) and/or Regulation(s). Each Directive and Regulation covers certain product category and, depends on the category an appropriate conformity procedure applies. Selling products without the CE mark is an economic offense that is punished differently by each Member State of European Union. Affixing CE marking on products that do not require the CE can also lead to penalties.
