The CE mark is accepted as evidence of an electrical product’s compliance with EU consumer product safety directives. However, CE marking is often self-certified by the manufacturer and as such has not been validated by a trusted third party.
The ENEC scheme constitutes a full certification scheme as defined in ISO/IEC 17067:2013. It has gained popularity in the EU as a valuable complement to CE marking. The ENEC scheme allows manufacturers and importers to clearly demonstrate compliance with applicable product safety through testing by independent third-party electrical certification bodies.
Electrical products that have been ENEC certified have been independently assessed for their safety in accordance with European safety standards, thereby providing buyers with an increased level of confidence. Lighting products bearing the ENEC and ENEC+ marks have additionally been evaluated for relevant performance criteria, potentially eliminating the need for duplicate performance testing.
TÜV SÜD has been accredited by the European Electrical Products Certification Association to certify electrical products under the ENEC scheme, and to certify lighting products under the ENEC+ scheme.
In addition, TÜV SÜD’s global Energy Efficiency Centres of Excellence are equipped to test and certify lighting products to worldwide energy efficiency requirements and standards, making us a single source for testing and certification services for all types of commercial, industrial and residential lighting products.
