CE certification is a regulatory requirement in the European Union (EU) for certain products. To obtain CE certification, a product must meet the health, safety, and environmental requirements of the applicable EU directives.
Products that require CE certification include medical devices, electrical equipment, toys, and construction products. The CE mark indicates that a product has been certified by the manufacturer as conforming to EU safety, health, and environmental protection requirements.
CE certification is not a quality or performance standard with respect to the design and manufacture of products. Rather it indicates that a product conforms to all relevant requirements in one or more EU directives covering specific third party concerns. There are different CE marking procedures for products depending on the sector they fall into.
