The letters ‘CE’ appear on many products that are traded on the single market in the European Economic Area (EEA).
The CE marking is required for many products. CE Marking shows that the manufacturer has checked that these products meet EU safety, health or environmental requirements. CE Marking is an indicator of a product’s compliance with EU legislation. CE Marking allows the free movement of products within the European market.

It means the product satisfies the legislative requirements to be sold there. It means that the manufacturer has checked that the product complies with all relevant essential requirements, for example health and safety requirements.
