The letters CE appear on many products traded on the extended Single Market in the European Economic Area (EEA). By affixing the CE marking to a product, a manufacturer declares that the product meets all the legal requirements for CE Marking and can be sold throughout the EEA without restriction. This also applies to products made in other countries that are sold in the EEA. The CE marking does not indicate that a product has been approved as safe by the EU or another authority. Not all products must have CE marking. It is compulsory only for most of the products covered by the New Approach Directives.
