The CE Marking Process

The core process for CE Marking includes identifying which Directives and Regulations pertain to your product, completing a conformity assessment, setting up a Technical File, and signing a Declaration of Conformity. After completing these steps, you can legally put the CE Marking on your item. Please note there are some technical variations as the law is complex.

1. Identify Applicable Legislation The first step is to identify which European Product Laws are relevant to your product. There are over 20 CE Directives and Regulations that cover a broad spectrum of products, from electrical equipment to machines to toys to PPE. An item may fall under more than one law.
2. Assessment Next comes the conformity assessment, which depending on circumstances may be carried out either entirely in-house or at least in part by an EU Notified Body. The assessment aims to establish your product satisfies the identified laws, and the assessment documents become part of your Technical File. You need to be able to produce your Technical File to EU Authorities upon request.
3. Compile Technical File You need to compile a dossier containing all the legally specified design, test and assessment documents, along with all applicable instructions, environmental statements, etc.
4.Declaration You must sign a Declaration of Conformity declaring that your product meets all applicable EU laws. Once you’ve completed this and all the steps above, your product can legally display the CE Marking and be placed on the market.
