CE Marking Testing And Certification

Gain access to the European Market with CE Marking

What is a CE Marking?

CE stands for Conformité Européenne, which translates from French to English as ‘European Conformity’. CE marking states that a product meets the requirements of all applicable EU directives. While for some products, CE marking can be carried out by the manufacturer themselves, other products must be tested by a company that offers CE marking services. TÜV SÜD provides companies around the world with CE mark testing and can also create technical documentation that shows your products are compliant.

Why is CE marking Important?

CE marking assures your product can enter the European Union and allows free movement throughout the nearly 30 countries that make up the European Economic Area, giving you direct access to over 500 million consumers. If a product that should display a CE mark is found not to have one, the manufacturer or distributor could be fined and face expensive product recall – so compliance is essential.


  1. Decide which Directives are applicable to your product
  2. Ensure your product is compliant with the applicable Directives by testing, and apply the relevant conformity assessment procedures
  3. Compile and retain a technical file, which satisfies the requirements of the Directives
  4. Write and sign the Declaration of Conformity and keep the original with the technical file
  5. Apply CE marking to the equipment in accordance with the requirements of the Directive
