CE Marking procedure is complex and plagued by legal paradox but we can smooth your
path into the EU
CE Marking Procedure
A) We ask you to submit product details with the information that we need
to search through the CE Marking legislation to confirm whether or not your product
needs third party testing.
B) When self certification without third party testing is permissible
1) Having checked
the feasibility of CE Self Certification without the need for product testing by
an approved CE Testing body, and finding that it IS PERMITTED, we further research
and prepare the Declaration of Conformity ready for you to sign backed up with CE
Compliance documentary evidence for your assurance.
2) Based on information that
you provide to us we also prepare and send to you the required CE Technical File which must be available for inspection at any time.
C) When self certification is NOT permissible
1) Having checked the feasibility of CE Self Certification without the need for product testing by an approved CE Testing
body and finding that it is NOT PERMITTED we advise you of the required process together
with a fixed quote to cover product testing and audit of production facilities to
reach the final stage leading to the Declaration of Conformity. We can arrange product
testing in any country worldwide.
2) Based on information that you provide to us we
also prepare and send to you the required CE Technical File which must be available
for inspection at any time.
CE Testing bodies are legally prevented from consulting or assisting
in any way whereas we can help you in every way possible and all within our normal
Declaration of Conformity
After the required INITIAL SEARCH through the EU legislation
we provide the Declaration Of Conformity ready for you to sign together with documentary
evidence to support that it complies in every way to the applicable EU directives.
On receipt of this you can immediately apply the CE Mark to your product. Depending
on certain factors it is permitted to place more than one product on the same declaration.
A Technical File for the product has to be prepared in line with EU
legislation. It must be kept on hand available for inspection at your premises. As
you are the experts on your products we prepare the technical file on your behalf
based on the information that you supply us. We are the experts on CE Compliance and so you only need to supply answers to our questions. We can advise you on just
how far you need to go without divulging too much sensitive information about the
product or production process.
Time effective and economic
We keep things as straightforward as possible and only
need to ask you to answer certain product and production questions in our INITIAL
SEARCH QUESTIONNAIRE. These questions are kept to a minimum to save your time whilst
covering all we need to know for compliance. The economy of this process enables
our low fees and saves you money. Of course with lots of time costly research sifting
through the overwhelming complexity of the subject you could do it all yourself.
But, even discounting the cost to you to do this work, you may always wonder if you
did it correctly and will it stand up if called upon to do so by the EU authorities.
Penalties for non compliance are severe.
