What means the CE marking?
CE marking is mandatory in order to import products into the European market. For machines, construction or medical products, among others, there are European directives and standards that a product has to comply with. The manufacturer must demonstrate that it is safe and confirm this by completing a compliance or installation declaration and by affixing a nameplate with the CE identification to the product.
Who is required to affix a CE marking?
Whoever imports a product manufactured abroad into the Europe Union becomes a distributor and thus takes over the manufacturer’s responsibility and is obliged to go through the entire conformity assessment procedure: to identify and assess the risks the product entails; to check that it has been correctly manufactured in accordance with the applicable standards and that the operating instructions are available in the local language. Finally, the declaration of conformity is completed and the nameplate with the CE marking is affixed to the product.
What happens if there is no CE marking?
In Germany, imported goods from third countries are checked by customs offices for the presence of the CE mark. If this marking is missing in breach of duty, the products are intercepted and must be returned or destroyed.
With a professionally executed CE marking, you can import the product into Europe and be sure that it will pass through customs in conformity with the law.
