Click the “Talk to Our Team” button to the right to contact our engineering and compliance team to request a free quote for your device or ask a question about the CE certification process.

If you’re developing an electronic device and plan to market it in the European Economic Area (EEA), you’ll need to complete lab testing and verify that your device complies with all relevant European Union directives. 

Achieving compliance with EU directives allows you to affix a CE mark to your device and enter the European market. 

We Can Help You Get CE Certification in Australia

As an ANSI-accredited electronics testing lab, we can complete CE testing for your device and help you verify compliance with all relevant EU regulations, granting you the ability to sell your device in the European market.

Our team specializes in CE testing and CE certification for electronic devices, including devices that transmit radio frequency (RF) signals. 

We regularly work with customers in Australia. Our engineering team can help you with the full lab testing and CE certification process, including safely shipping your electronic device to and from our lab.

CE Certification is Required for EEA Market Access

If you want to sell your electronic product in the European Economic Area (EEA), your product needs to receive a CE mark. This certification mark shows that your product conforms with all relevant European directives for health, safety and environmental protection.

Similar to FCC equipment authorization in the United States, CE compliance is legally required for entry into the European market. 

Several EU directives apply to electronic devices:

  • Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive. This directive ensures that devices sold in Europe do not cause electromagnetic interference (EMI) and have an adequate level of electromagnetic immunity. It applies to all electronic devices sold in the EEA.
  • Radio Equipment Directive (RED). This directive applies to radio equipment. It sets a range of performance requirements for radio devices to ensure that RF devices do not interfere with each other and use the radio spectrum efficiently.
  • Low Voltage Directive (LVD). This directive sets safety requirements for devices that have certain voltage ratings. It applies only to devices with a voltage rating of between 15 and 1,000 volts for alternating current and 75 to 1,500 volts for direct current.
  • Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive. This directive restricts the use of hazardous substances in electronic devices. It places limits on substances such as lead, mercury and others. 

The testing and certification process can vary based on your device and the EU directives that apply to it. Typically, testing for CE compliance involves verifying that your product’s emissions and immunity to electromagnetic interference meet all relevant standards and directives.

Our engineers can inform you about the lab testing and regulatory compliance requirements for your device. Contact us to ask our engineers your questions and find out more about the testing and compliance process for your device.
