A product must have a CE mark before it is launched on the European market. According to the EU directives, every manufacturer is obliged to carry out the machine risk assessment.

The machine safety assessment makes it possible to obtain the CE mark. Thereby, the entrepreneur is responsible for irregularities and problems related to safety during the use of product.

CE Marking

The manufacturer who provides its products with the CE marking must be sure that they meet the basic requirements set by the EU directives for machines. In addition, the product should have an identification number, type and year of production. It is essential for the manufacturer to know when it is required to use the CE marking.

What is the CE marking?

The CE marking becomes a must-have for machines and devices. The machine risk analysis should be completed before the product is marketed. In other words, the machine must fulfil the requirements of new approach directives and undergo machine conformity assessment procedures. The member states have no right to impose restrictions on the marketing of products which bear the CE mark.

What does not the CE marking mean?

CE is not a trademark. A trademark makes it possible to distinguish products from other products available in the market.  It is about a catch-phrase, a graphic, a name.  The trademark can be covered by a protection right. The authorised party may then place the ® symbol next to the mark to indicate that the mark has been registered.

Can a product have more than just one CE mark?

Yes, a product can have more than just one CE mark but it applies only to particular single cases. If you have a complicated device which consists of advanced units, each of them can have individual CE marking. In such case, the mark is displayed in a visible spot on a special plate and refers to the whole machine.

When is it necessary to provide the CE marking?

The CE marking is a “pass” that a product needs to appear on the European market which covers 30 member states and includes more than 500 million consumers. The manufacturer who does not have this marking is not authorised to market and sell  specific goods.
