The EU has introduced a CE marking system to facilitate and reduce trade between EU countries. This means that the manufacturer claims that its products meet the minimum legal requirements for health and safety in accordance with EU directives.
The big advantage for manufacturers is that there are now only a limited number of requirements and procedures to follow when designing and manufacturing products for the entire EEA. Different and conflicting national regulations have been removed. This means that products no longer have to be adapted to the specific requirements of the various EEA member countries.
In addition, it can be seen as an advantage that the implementation of requirements makes the product safer for consumers and this can also reduce damage claims and liability. You can consider the CE marking certification for your produts via https://bluedicesolutions.co.uk/ce-marking-steel/.

- Enter the new EU market more easily
When your products are CE marked, you’ll find that importers, distributors, and sales agents are easier to find because they don’t have to deal with complicated compliance regulations. You won’t want to get involved in product certification, which requires complex work experience. You may excel at marketing and sales, but are you prepared for the regulatory and legal challenges?
- General principles of CE marking
The CE marking may only be affixed to products affixed to certain Community harmonization laws and not to other products. The CE marking is the only marking that certifies the product’s conformity with the applicable requirements of the relevant Community harmonization laws governing its affixing.
It is forbidden to affix any marks, symbols, or writings on the product that could mislead third parties about the meaning or form of the CE mark. Other markings may be affixed to the product, provided they do not interfere with the visibility, legibility, and meaning of the CE marking.
