CE Compliance
What does the CE mark mean?
The CE mark is a mandatory European marking for certain product groups to indicate conformity with the essential health and safety requirements set out in European Directives. The letters 'CE' are an abbreviation of Conformité Européenne, French for European conformity. The CE mark must be affixed to all machinery powered by electricity shipped into the European Union.

The CE mark is not a quality-mark. First, it refers to the safety rather than to the quality of a product. Second, most quality markings are voluntary opposite to the CE marking, which is mandatory for the products to which it applies.

What are the steps of the CE marking and certification procedure?

Before the CE marking may be affixed to a product, the essential requirements of the Machinery and Low Voltage European Directives must be met. Conformity to the Electro-magnetic Compatibility Directive may also be required. The conformity of the product must be proved by following a testing and/or certification procedure. In addition to performing a risk analysis and compliance testing prior to a shipment.

Once the above procedures have been completed, CCCi will issue a Certificate of Compliance. It is then up to the manufacturer to prepare the DOC or  Declaration of Conformity which is signed by a Company officer, which asserts that the tool meets the appropriate Directives.
