CE Marking

CE marking was introduced to guarantee safe products for consumers in the European Union. As a result, a product may only be offered for sale in the European Economic Area if it conforms to the essential requirements of EU regulations governing the product in question. By applying CE marking, the manufacturer demonstrates that a product fulfils the relevant legal regulations and technical specifications. The overarching objective is the free movement of goods within the European Economic Area.
