To gain access to a market with over 500 million consumers, products sold withing the 27 nation bloc as well as Iceland, Norway, and Liechtenstein must bear the CE Mark. Switzerland accepts the CE mark for some products and Turkey actually requires that many products be CE marked.

What is the CE Mark?

The CE mark (above) is a symbol that a manufacturer (see definition below) affixes to a product so that it can be sold in Europe. The mark is mandatory for products which fall under one of 24 European directives. The CE mark means that the manufacturer takes responsibility for the compliance of a product with all applicable European health, safety, performance and environmental requirements. CE stands for “Conformité Européenne", the French for European conformity.

The Canadian Trade Commissioner Service provides a White Paper entitled '6 Steps to CE Marking' to hep companies find out the process involved.

What is the CE mark?
The CE mark (above) is a symbol that a manuacturer (see denition below) axes to a product so that itcan be sold in Europe. The mark is mandatory or products which all under one o 24 European directives.The CE mark means that the manuacturer takes responsibility or the compliance o a product withall applicable European health, saety, perormance and environmental requirements. CE stands or“Conormité Européenne,” the French or European conormity.The mark is required in all 27 member states othe EU, as well as Iceland, Norway, andLiechtenstein. Switzerland accepts the CE markor some products and Turkey actually requiresthat many products be CE marked.
The bottom line: CE marking providesaccess to a market o over 500 millionconsumers.CE is not like other certication marks.
The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or the Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL) marks, or example,can only be used when those organizations have determined that a product meets applicable standards.European organizations do not grant authorization to use the CE mark as it is not owned by any particularbody. The manuacturer is responsible or its proper use.The manuacturer, whether established inside or outside the EU, is ultimately responsible or axing theCE mark and is also responsible or its proper use. The manuacturer established outside the EU mayappoint an authorized representative established in the EU to act on his behal. CE marking is about morethan axing a symbol to a product.
Follow the subsequent six steps to learn about the CE marking process.
Denition o manuacturer:
The natural or legal personwith responsability or thedesign, manuacture, packaging andlabelling o a device beore it is placedon the market under its own name.
