CE Marking

.CE is the abbreviation of the French term "Conformité Européene" ("European Conformity"). 

CE Marking affixed to a product is a statement by the manufacturer that the product meets the essential safety, health and environmental requirements as set by European regulations or the majority of so-called product directives.

For governmental bodies, CE marking on a product is proof that the product is on the market legally. It enables the free movement of goods within the EU single market and can serve as a basis for withdrawal of non-conforming products from the market by customs authorities or other market surveillance authorities.
