For manufacturers or importers who decide to market within the countries of the European Economic Area, it is mandatory to apply the CE mark on their products. The CE marking is the guarantee that the products comply with the applicable EU directives and regulations, allowing their marketing in Europe. The manufacturer who affixes the CE mark and markets its products therefore declares to the authorities and to the market that these products comply with the requirements of the reference directives.
According to the directive and the type of product, the application of the CE mark may require the mandatory intervention of a Notified Body (as for example for medical devices). In other cases, the CE marking is essentially based on the manufacturer’s declaration of conformity with the relevant directives.
Before applying the CE mark, it is mandatory to ensure that the product meets all relevant requirements.
