Vincent Wolf from Graubner Industrie-Beratung GmbH said, "CE marking is mandatory to enable the free movement of goods within the European Union. For this reason, especially in the case of new technologies such as Opvius OPV, it is important to do the necessary homework in good time." Vincent added, "The investigations carried out in advance were crucial to the evaluation of OPVIUS technology with regard to CE conformity."
Hermann Issa, Senior Director Business Development & Sales from Opvius, said, "We have been working for some time to underpin open questions by means of studies and research work which now allow us to conclude the evaluation procedure. This is an important step, as great care must be taken in particular regarding distribution to the end-customer. On behalf of our clients in industry, we want to safeguard this in good time."
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.
