What is CE Certification?

Conformité Européenne (CE) certification or mark indicates that a product meets European directive standards, thus ensuring the safety and health of the consumer. It does not signify the product quality, but it demonstrates that a product withstands the standards to be sold in the European market. 

Moreover, CE certificate or mark does not illustrate the production of a product in the European Economic Area (EEA). However, it signifies that a product complies with the European standards, and can be sold in the European market. 

Thus, it is an obligation that a manufacturer or its agents, including the manufacturer who desires to import goods must fulfill.

When is CE certification compulsory?

CE certification is compulsory for the products on which EU requirements apply. Thus, affixing the CE mark on a product ensures whether you need certification for the same or not, because it is restricted to affix the CE mark on the product which is not obligated to follow EU specifications.
