What is CE certification? (What is CE Mark?)
In EU countries, CE certification is considered as a "commercial passport" for products to circulate in the EU market. Currently, many manufacturers have their goods confiscated by EU customs because of bad quality or returned because there is no CE Marking.
CE has many different names such as CE Marking, CE Mark but according to European Commission, it is officially called CE Marking. CE Marking is required for many products and indicates that:
- Manufacturers have tested products to meet EU requirements(CE requirements) for environment, safety and health.
- Product complies with EU legislation.
- Product is freely traded within the European market.
CE Marking certificate is also considered as a "commercial passport" for products to enter the European EU market. Currently, many manufacturers have their goods confiscated by EU customs because of bad quality or returned because there is no CE Marking. However, not all organizations can issue CE Marking certificates.
A CE Marking organization must obtain a Notified Body number from the European Commission with a recognized scope, and have their information displayed on the European Commission's website http://ec.europa. eu/. If a fake or unrecognized CE Marking certificate is used, the product will be returned because it does not meet EU requirements and lacks relevant technical records.
