CE certification, that is, only the product does not endanger the basic safety requirements of human, animal and goods safety, rather than the general quality requirements, the coordination directive only specifies the main requirements, the general directive requirements are standard tasks. Therefore, the exact meaning is that the CE mark is a safety pass mark and not a quality pass mark. It is the “main requirement” that constitutes the core of the European Directive.
"CE“ The logo is a safety certification mark and is considered a passport that the manufacturer opens and enters the European market. CE stands for CONFORMITE EUROPEENNE.
In the EU market, the “CE” mark is a compulsory certification mark. Whether it is a product produced by an enterprise within the EU or a product produced by another country, in order to freely circulate in the EU market, it must be affixed with the “CE” flag. It indicates that the product meets the basic requirements of the EU Directive on Technology Coordination and Standardization. This is a mandatory requirement for products in EU law.
