In recent years, in the European Economic Area (European Union, the European Free Trade Association member countries, except Switzerland) market sales of goods, CE mark the use of more and more, affixed CE mark of goods that meet safety, Environmental protection and consumer protection and a series of European directives to express the requirements.
In the past, the EC countries on the import and sale of the product requirements vary, according to a national standard of manufactured goods to other countries may not be listed as part of the efforts to eliminate trade barriers, CE came into being. Therefore, CE stands for European Unity (CONFORMITE EUROPEENNE). In fact, CE or EC countries in many countries in the language of the "European Community" the acronym, the original English phrase EUROPEAN COMMUNITY abbreviated as EC, because the European Community in French is COMMUNATE EUROPEIA, Italian for the COMUNITA EUROPEA , Portuguese COMUNIDADE EUROPEIA, Spanish COMUNIDADE EUROPE, etc., so change the EC to CE. Of course, may also wish to CE as CONFORMITY WITH EUROPEAN (DEMAND) (in line with European requirements).
Third, what is the significance of CE certification
CE certification is the meaning of: CE acronyms for the symbol that affixed CE certified products comply with the requirements of the European Directive the main requirements (Essential Requirements), and to confirm that the product has passed the corresponding Of the conformity assessment procedures and / or the manufacturer's declaration of conformity, truly become the product is allowed to enter the European market sales pass. The relevant requirements of the CE mark affixed to the industrial products, no CE mark, shall not be listed for sale, has been affixed to the CE mark market products and found to be inconsistent with safety requirements, ordered to recover from the market, continuing violations of the relevant provisions of the CE mark , Will be restricted or prohibited to enter the EU market or forced to withdraw from the market.
4, CE mark has not proved the meaning of qualified quality constitute the core of the European directive "main requirements", in the EC on May 7, 1985 (85 / C136 / 01) "technical coordination and standards of the new method of resolution "Has specific meanings for the purposes of the development and implementation of directives, namely, that the product is not limited to the basic safety requirements for the safety of humans, animals and goods, rather than the general quality requirements, and that the harmonized directive only specifies the main requirements , General instruction requirements are standard tasks. Products meet the relevant requirements of the relevant directives, will be able to add the CE mark, not according to the relevant provisions of the general quality standards can determine the use of CE mark. Therefore, the accurate meaning is: CE mark is a safety mark rather than the quality of qualified mark. A kite with the CE mark does not mean that it can fly well, but only that the kite meets the safety requirements
