Ce marking

  1. 1. CE Marking CE Marking: Trade Passport for your products to enter the European Union CE Marking on a product has now become an essential requirement to enter the European Union. It is a manufacturer’s declaration that the product complies with all the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation. The letters "CE" are the abbreviation of French phrase "Conformité Européene" which means "European Conformity". The term initially used was "EC Mark" and it was officially replaced by "CE Marking" in the Directive 93/68/EEC in 1993. "CE Marking" is now used in all EU official documents. CE Marking on a product indicates to governmental officials that the product is legally placed on the market in their country. It also ensures free movement of the product within the EFTA & European Union (EU) (total 28 countries). CE Marking on a product permits the withdrawal of the non-conforming products by customs and enforcement/vigilance authorities. CE Marking affecting the export to European Union If the new product directives apply to your products and you want to continue to export to the European market (or introduce new products), then CE Marking is crucial. It is not unusual nowadays that non-EU manufacturers and exporters have had their product(s) seized by customs officials in the European Union at the worst or returned to them because they do not have the CE marking affixed to the product(s). Benefits of having CE Marking on your products: • With this "Trade Passport" your products, you can easily gain access to the entire European Union (EU) plus European Free Trade Association (EFTA) market • There will be only one set of laws and regulations for the designing, manufacturing and labeling of products. The multiple and conflicting national restrictions on regulated products will be eliminated. Thus the CE Marking on your product will make your trade with EU countries cheaper and easier • Your product will be made safer for consumers and thus the damage claims and liability premiums will be reduced.

  3. 3. CE Marking 2006/42/EC Machinery 89/686/EEC 93/68/EEC 93/95/EEC 96/58/EC Personal protective equipment (PPE) 2009/23/EC (ex. 90/384/EEC Non-automatic weighing instruments 90/385/EEC 93/42/EEC 93/68/EEC 2007/47/EC Active implantable medical devices 2009/142/EC (ex 90/396/EEC) Appliances burning gaseous fuels 92/42/EEC 2004/8/EC 2005/32/EC Efficiency requirements for new hot-water boilers fired with liquid or gaseous fuels 93/15/EEC Explosives for civil uses 93/42/EEC 98/79/EC 2000/70/EC 2001/104/EC 2007/47/EC Medical devices 94/9/EC Equipment explosive atmospheres (ATEX) 94/25/EC 2003/44/EC Recreational craft 95/16/EC Lifts 97/23/EC Pressure equipment 98/79/EC In vitro diagnostic medical devices 1999/5/EC Radio Equipment and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment and the Mutual Recognition of their Conformity 2000/9/EC Cableway installations designed to carry persons 2004/22/EC Measuring instruments 2007/23/EC Pyrotechnic articles
  4. 4. CE Marking Countries currently requiring products to bear CE Marking Currently, total 30 (15+10+2+3) countries are requiring the products to bear CE Marking. Before May 1, 2004, these were the 15 European Union (EU) member countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and United Kingdom (Great Britain) plus the European Free Trade Association - EFTA's 3 member states: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. Since May 1, 2004, the following 10 new member states joined the EU, which also adopted the CE-Marking requirements: Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Malta, and Cyprus. Since January 1, 2007, Bulgaria and Romania joined the EU and adopted the CE-Marking requirements. Responsible authority for affixing the CE Marking First and foremost, the manufacturer of a product is responsible for ensuring compliance with European Directives and for affixing the CE Marking – irrespective of whether the manufacturer is located within or outside the European Union. To do this, manufacturers may appoint an authorized representative established in the European Union to act on their behalf. CE marking is essential as it entitles you to offer your products for sale in the EU. You are responsible for the implementation of the relevant EU Directives in conformity with standards. The manufacturer or authorized representative must document the product’s conformity with the relevant EU Directives by affixing the CE marking. If you fail to deliver the requisite verification in your capacity as a manufacturer or importer, the competent market surveillance authority may prohibit you from placing your products on the market. Gaining a competitive edge with TÜV SÜD Product Service The CE Marking itself is solely a means to facilitate the free passage of goods throughout Europe and to demonstrate compliance with uniform safety standards. Though CE Marking is mandatory, you can still use it to carve out a competitive profile for your company and your machinery by using a recognized EU Notified Body such as TÜV SÜD Product Service. The CE marking thus becomes an opportunity for you to demonstrate your safety standards to your customers.
