What is the CE mark?
CE, a European mandatory tagging, is intended to identify the compliance of a specific group of products with the health and safety requirements set out in European Directives. They are CE-denominated Européenne Conformité (equivalent to the European Conformity English term).
The CE marking should be affixed to products that are within the scope and scope of approx.20 (called "New Approach Directives").
Without the CE marking, and without complying with the European instructions, the product will not have the ability to sell or use to provide services in the European Union market, otherwise, with the conformity of the product with the EU directives and regulations and the affixing of the CE. The EU countries will not be allowed to prohibit, restrict or resist the sale or use of products for the delivery of their products in the markets of their respective countries. Therefore, the CE mark is a trademark visa for entry into the EU market.
It should be noted that the CE mark is not a sign of quality, and more so on product safety, so product quality is the most evidence of voluntary quality, while the CE marking is mandatory and confirms the product's compliance with European guidelines.
Why use the CE mark?
The CE marking system has been created for the following reasons:
Uniformity of different national rules (designated in different countries) related to products, for consumers in the EU, And creating a market with the same law for producers and exporters in the world who are willing to sell their products in the EU.
1. The harmonization of different national laws (designated in different countries) related to products for consumers in the European Union and the creation of a market with the same law for producers and exporters in the world who are willing to sell their products in the European Union.
2. Establish a cost-saving method for producers and exporters in the world who wish to sell their products in the European Union (without such a method, manufacturers and exporters must pay the costs of adapting their products to the laws of each EU country separately Paid).
3. Improved product safety.
4. The introduction of a uniform system for controlling and checking products in the European Union.
Previously, producers had to adapt themselves to the different requirements imposed by different countries for a specific product to sell their product on the EU market, which was aimed at creating a single market with the possibility of free circulation of goods, People, services and capital were in contradiction.
By establishing a uniform system (methods, standards and rules) to checking and verify product safety (CE marking), the above problem has been resolved. With the help of the conformity assessment system, it can be ensured that products on the market comply with the safety requirements of EU
