In order to be sold in the EU, many products must be CE certified, which shows that the manufacturer has assessed the product and it is deemed to meet the safety, health and environmental protection requirements of the EU.
The CE certified is mandatory for products manufactured anywhere in the world to be marketed in the EU, as this certifies that the product is good and complies with all legislation related to self-declared products.
In CT Compliance Testing we know about this procedure that applies to electronic equipment that emit frequencies, if you are someone who wants to export your equipment to the European Union, pay attention to the following information.
When is CE certified mandatory?
CE certified is only mandatory for certain products for which EU specifications exist and for which CE marking is required.
Some products are simultaneously subject to several EU requirements. You must ensure that your product complies with all relevant requirements before affixing the CE marking. It is prohibited to affix the CE marking on products for which there are no EU specifications or which do not require the affixing of the CE marking.
How to obtain a CE marking certificate?
As the manufacturer, you are solely responsible for declaring the conformity of the product with all CE marking requirements. You do not need a license to affix the CE marking on the product, but before doing so you have to:
Ensure the conformity of the product with all relevant requirements at EU level.
Determine whether you can assess the product yourself or whether you need to use a Notified Body.
Once the product bears the CE mark logo, if requested by the national competent authority, you must provide them with all the information and supporting documentation about the CE marking.
Do you need an independent assessment?
You should check whether your product needs to be tested by a notified body. You can find this information in the legislation applicable to your product: check the applicable standards per product category.
In this case, as it concerns equipment that emits frequencies, you should work with a laboratory that performs tests and certifies the product with the CE marking. CT Compliance Testing is a good option as it has a laboratory, personnel and certifications to guarantee the quality of a radio emitting equipment.
Also, if you have to use a notified body, the CE mark logo must be accompanied by the identification number of the notified body. The CE marking and the identification number can be affixed separately, provided they are clearly linked.
If your product does not need to be verified by an independent body, it is up to you to verify that it meets the relevant technical requirements. This includes estimating and documenting potential risks. However, we recommend that you leave this to a company to carry out the required procedures and tests.
