Testing and Certification Services to the CE Mark

CE Marking And certification solutions

CE Mark Testing & CertificationCE 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 that a product 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.

CE certification and 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.
