An Introduction to CE Marking

Technical Compliance is not a luxury, it is a requirement.

Course Overview

The course will demonstrate how to create a Technical Conformance File (TCF) for a complex product which must comply with multiple EU Directives to ensure that the CE Mark can be properly applied.

This course is developed for Engineers with a requirement to develop and compile TCFs for their products and will equip the attendee with appropriate knowledge to produce competent TCFs.

What is CE Marking?

Administrative Marking

CE marking is an administrative marking that indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products sold within the European Economic Area. It is not a quality indicator or a certification mark.

Recognised Worldwide

The CE marking is also found on products sold outside the EEA that have been manufactured to EEA standards. This makes the CE marking recognizable worldwide even to people who are not familiar with the European Economic Area.

Product Meets EU Standards

The CE marking is the manufacturer’s declaration that the product meets EU standards for health, safety, and environmental protection.

Sold Freely Throughout Europe

The CE mark indicates that the product may be sold freely in any part of the European Economic Area, regardless of its country of origin.
