In order to go to market in countries of the EEA (European Economic Area), many products require CE Marking. The letters “CE” are the abbreviation of the French phrase “Conformité Européene" (European Conformity). The CE Marking is a recognized symbol indicating that the product meets compliance requirements set down by European law, enabling free movement and sale of your products in the European market.
By placing the CE marking on a product, a manufacturer is declaring that a product complies with all applicable directives and regulations. Depending on the industry and country, market access requirements may vary. In general, however, the majority of national requirements are aligned with European ones, and UL can guide you through the whole process of achieving compliance.
