CE Marking is the symbol CE. The letters "CE" are the abbreviation of French phrase "Comformite Europeene" which literally means "European Conformity". The term initially used was "EC Mark" and it was officially replaced by "CE Marking" in the year 1993. "CE Marking" is now used in all EU official documents.
The CE marking symbolizes that a product it is affixed to is in conformity with all relevant essential requirements of the European technical regulations ("Directives"), and that the product compliance has been established using the appropriate conformity assessment procedure(s). The 'essential requirements' are requirements related to product safety, public health and consumer protection.
CE marking is obligatory for any product covered by one or more of the European technical regulations requiring the affixing of the CE marking. Without the CE marking, these products are not allowed to be placed or to be put into service in Europe.
