The Importance of CE Marking
CE marking is a crucial procedure that guarantees a product’s conformity to EU regulations. It is mandatory for manufacturers, importers and distributors of non-food products to obtain the CE marking if they wish to trade on EU/EAA markets.
However, not all products are required to have the CE marking. It is applicable only to products that are mentioned in the Directive(s) and/or Regulation(s). Each Directive and Regulation covers a certain product category and, depending on the category, an appropriate conformity procedure applies. Selling products without the CE marking is an economic offense that is sanctioned differently by each Member State of European Union. Affixing CE marking on products that do not require the CE marking can also lead to penalties.
