Only one CE mark can be applied to a product. A product may fall under more than one directive. For example, an insulation product is covered by several directives, such as the Low Voltage Directive, the Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive and the Machinery Directive.
In this case, the European Union Commission requires the implementation of standards published by the European Standards Committee (CEN), including the harmonized technical specification under the Construction Products Directive. In short, all requirements are to be gathered only under a CE mark.
Harmonized standards are prepared by the European Standards Committee (CEN). Only products bearing the CE mark, ie conforming to the harmonized specification, can be marketed within the European Union. However, a number of restrictions may be imposed by member states where certain product groups or performance levels are required. The harmonized product standards have an annex that clearly states which parts of the standard are required for CE marking. Non-harmonized standards, on the other hand, do not require an authorization for the countries of the European Union, nor do they have annexes.
All manufacturers must comply with the CE marking rules. The product must be correctly CE marked. Otherwise it is considered illegal and must be removed from the market. The legal consequences of this situation depend on the principles of national legislation.
No market surveillance is envisaged under the CE marking application. Market surveillance is an integral part of the system in the relevant directives, but in practice full freedom prevails. However, there are other legal regulations on market surveillance at the European Union level. For example, according to Directive 765 / 2008 (EC), market surveillance authorities have to evaluate the product to determine whether the product will be withdrawn from the market. In this respect, Member States must closely monitor products covered by compliance laws to meet the requirements of protection of public interest, such as health or safety.
The New Approach program, launched by the European Commission in 1985, aims to ensure the lowest level of product safety and facilitate the free movement of products within a single market. The program offers a number of key requirements in the areas of safety, health, the environment and consumer protection.
The New Approach Directives are community-level regulations in all countries of the European Union that are made compulsory by adopting national laws. These regulations require a visual symbol and a set of basic requirements to indicate that a product complies with the CE marking. These directives are based on harmonized European standards and the European Technical Approval Guidelines, which translate basic requirements into technical specifications. The CE marking is therefore a mandatory label for all products subject to one or more directives and is a mandatory and visible marking that the relevant products may be placed on the market within the European Union.
Indicates that the conformity system has been approved by the manufacturer or the notified body for risky products to ensure that the product complies with all the requirements of the relevant directives. These conditions are fully focused on safety, public health and consumer protection.
In short, the CE marking is a key indicator of the conformity of a product with EU regulations and ensures the free movement of products within the European Union. By affixing the CE marking to the product, the manufacturer declares that it acts in accordance with all legal requirements under its responsibility.
