CE Marking, Testing and Certification

Adding value with our service portfolio

What is a CE certification?

CE stands for Conformité Européenne, which translates from French to English as ‘European Conformity’. CE certification is an EU safety directive that indicates that a product has passed certain tests and means it can legally be sold anywhere within the EU and the European Economic Area.
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.
