As a manufacturer, what do I need to do after we obtain the CE certification?
Product manufacturers needed to display the CE mark(stamp) on their product. The process of getting a CE mark(stamp) may seem vague. An outline of the process is as follows:
- Manufacturers documents and test reports will be assessed to ensure conformity.
- A technical file must be completed. iCertifi will complete this on your behalf.
- The manufacturer will issue a CE Declaration of Conformity (DoC)
- CE mark will then be added to the product as a visual verification of compliance to CE standards.
What is the distributor’s responsibility for products that require CE marking?
Distributors of products requiring CE marking should be inspected to ensure that this brand is present and properly positioned in the items. Distributors must also examine the accompanying documentation to ensure that the CE mark is obtained legally and correctly.
If you are a merchant for a product that is distributed in the European Economic Area, please contact us for professional certification services. We can help you to ensure that your products are on a legal level of safety, a level of health and environmental protection.
Who sets standards for products that are sold to EEA?
Postal stamps are established in accordance with the EC directives. This Directive is a legal act of the European Union (EU). The EU has established product codes for many industries in 1985; These standards are standards of health, safety and environmental protection.
Presently, set standards and legal standards are managed by two separate entities. While the European Union has established compliance with CE rules, you do not have to go through the EU. Instead, compliance can be applied in different ways.
1. Each distribution company has the opportunity to check the compliance efforts of their manufacturers. If the distributor checks their production clients, the manufacturer of the product must provide evidence of their CE mark.
2. Different European countries within the European Union have the ability to manage individual and local enforcement.
3. Third party testers may be engaged to evaluate whether EC certification standards are met.

What is the meaning of CE Certificate of Compliance?
CE Certificate of Compliance allows products to move freely and sell on the European market. This brand offers consumers proof that the product meets the environment, health and safety standard set by the EEA. Performance requirements are not a guarantee of quality. This simply means that the product fulfills the conditions for sale in the EU.
It is important to note that the CE marking does not mean that the product is made in the EEA. The European conformity marking indicates that it has reviewed, approved and pass the environment, safety and health that the EEA has established for a product to be sold in the EEA.
