What is CE Certification?

CE Certification is a process which gives the right to affix CE marking to a product. Ideally it should start in the development stage of a product, as there are certain CE requirements related to product safety, user health and environment that are good to know during the development, other than the fact that the entire life-cycle is taken into consideration. Products having CE mark must comply with European safety rules and only after that they can be traded freely within European Economic Area (EEA).

Six steps for CE Certification

Depending on the product category, the process of getting CE certification varies. Common process includes the following steps:

  1. Find the EU Directive(s) that applies to the product

  2. Search for essential requirements applicable to the product

  3. Determine if the product requires Notified Body assessment

  4. Assess product conformity

  5. Create and maintain the Technical Documentation

  6. Draw up the Declaration of Conformity and affix the CE Mark
