The CE marking must be affixed to the product in such a way that it is visible, legible and indelible. However, in cases where this is not possible, or where the CE marking is not possible due to the nature of the product, the CE marking must be included on the product packaging and accompanying documents.
If a notified body is involved in the CE marking process, the CE marking must be followed by its identification number. In addition to the CE marking, there may be other markings on the product at national, regional or European level.
The CE mark is a mark that complies with health, safety and environmental protection standards for products sold in the European Economic Area. In other words, with the CE marking, the manufacturer declares that the product meets the requirements of the applicable European Union directives.
The CE marking is a kind of passport for products entering the European Union market. Although it shows that it has fulfilled the quality requirements, it does not mean that the product is of good quality, but that it meets the relevant legal requirements. Therefore, products that meet these requirements can be considered quality. In this respect, the CE mark is the quality symbol of the product. The consumer company places the CE mark on the product as an indication of the conformity of the product with the harmonized standards. The CE marking ensures that products are freely circulated within the European Economic Area 30.
The greatest advantage for manufacturers is to have a single set of requirements and processes for the European Economic Area that must be followed in the design and manufacture of the product. New Approach Directives and various and contradictory national regulations have been abolished. As a result, the product does not need to be adapted to the different specific requirements of the member states. In addition, with the application of the requirements of the directives, the product becomes safer for the consumers and the demands for damage and liability are reduced.
Apart from being a legal obligation, the CE marking application has other benefits. For example, products can be compared on the basis of harmonized product and test standards and, where necessary, testing and approval services from third-party independent organizations. Some of the tests go beyond traditional national requirements. With this practice, product standards have been introduced in some countries that were not previously available. In addition, the responsibility of the manufacturer is clearly defined.
The CE marking must be affixed to the product by the manufacturer after the requirements of the relevant directive have been fulfilled. The CE marking must comply with the legal format and be applied in a visible, legible and indelible manner. In addition, if a notified body is involved in the production control phase, the identification number of that body must be shown beside the CE marking.
In order to obtain a CE certificate, the manufacturer must first determine the European Union requirements for its product. This means that the product must check whether it meets certain requirements. For this purpose, it must first determine which directive or directives the product falls under. The next step is to determine whether the product needs to be tested and approved by a notified body.
Depending on the level of risk they carry for some products, the notified body must be involved and carry out the necessary tests and approve the product according to the result. If the notified body is not required to do so, the manufacturer may have the necessary tests carried out in his own laboratories or in an independent, independent and externally developed laboratory. The next thing to do is to prepare and sign the European Union certificate of conformity. All the information and documents obtained are collected in a technical dossier and CE mark can be put on the product.
