CE Marking is a mandatory legal conformity requirement for all products
sold within the European Union that fall within the scope of a CE marking directive. By affixing a CE Marking logo to a product and signing the Declaration of Conformity, a product supplier is declaring to the EU authorities that the requirements of all applicable directives have been met. Depending on the directive, involvement of a European Union ‘Notified Body’ may be mandatory or voluntary.
