Always check for the CE mark

(12 Sep 2018)

The CE marking is a conformity marking consisting of the letters "CE". CE is an abbreviation for 'Conformité Européenne', French for 'European Conformity'. Initially the term used was “EC Mark” but this was officially replaced by “CE Marking” in 1993 and is now used in all EU official documents. Please read this helpful leaflet for more information.

With the CE Marking being like a passport for the EEA (European Economic Area) it allows manufacturers to freely circulate their products throughout the EEA. Instead of adapting the products for each national market according to the regulations, there now is only one set of requirements and procedures in designing and manufacturing a product within the EEA. For consumers CE Marking has the benefit that products will be safer and therefore damage and liability claims will be reduced.
