CE Marking Service
The initials “CE” stand for Conformity Europeans, which is French for "European Conformity”. The CE Marking Service, which is affixed to a product or its packaging, is considered proof that a product has met the requirements of the harmonized European standard, or directive.
CE Marking on a product is a manufacturer's declaration that the product complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation, in practice by many of the so-called Product Directives.
General principles of CE Marking:
The CE marking shall be affixed only by the manufacturer or his authorized representative.
The CE marking shall be affixed only to products to which its affixing is provided for by specific Community harmonization legislation, and shall not be affixed to any other product.
By affixing or having affixed the CE marking, the manufacturer indicates that he takes responsibility for the conformity of the product with all applicable requirements set out in the relevant Community harmonization legislation providing for its affixing.
The CE marking shall be the only marking which attests the conformity of the product with the applicable requirements of the relevant Community harmonization legislation providing for its affixing.
The affixing to a product of markings, signs or inscriptions which are likely to mislead third parties regarding the meaning or form of the CE marking shall be prohibited. Any other marking may be affixed to the product provided that the visibility, legibility and meaning of the CE marking is not thereby impaired.
Member States shall ensure the correct implementation of the regime governing the CE marking and take appropriate action in the event of improper use of the marking. Member States shall also provide for penalties for infringements, which may include criminal sanctions for serious infringements. Those penalties shall be proportionate to the seriousness of the offence and constitute an effective deterrent against improper use.

Personal protective equipment
Active implantable medical devices
In vitro diagnostics
Radio and Telecommunications terminal equipment
Simple pressure vessels
Equipment and protective systems for use in explosive atmospheres

Develop and maintain a technical file containing all relevant technical and test data.
Prepare declarations of conformities.
Produce the CE marking label and accompanying information.
