The letters ‘CE’ appear on many products that are traded on the single market in the European Economic Area (EEA).
CE marking is required for many products. CE marks:
- Show that the manufacturer has checked that their products meet EU safety, health or environmental requirements
- Are an indicator of a product’s compliance with EU legislation
- Allow the free movement of products within the European market
By placing the CE mark on a product a manufacturer is declaring, on his sole responsibility, conformity with all of the legal requirements necessary to achieve CE marking status. With that mark, the manufacturer is ensuring validity for that product to be sold throughout the EEA.
CE marking does not mean that a product was made in the EEA, but states that the product is assessed before being placed on the market. It means the product satisfies the legislative requirements to be sold there.
Why You Should Attend:
If you manufacture products for the EEA it is imperative that you know and understand the regulations that govern the CE marking process particularly in light of the new EU medical device regulation. Manufacturers, distributors, and importers all have roles to play and have responsibilities concerning CE marking.
If you are a manufacturer it is your responsibility to:
- Carry out the conformity assessment
- Set up the technical file
- Issue the EC Declaration of Conformity (DoC)
- Place CE marking on a product
If you are a distributor you must check the presence of both the CE marking and the necessary supporting documentation.
If you are importing a product that is from a third country you have to check that the manufacturer outside the EU has undertaken the necessary steps. You must check that the documentation is available.
