  1. CE marking

    The CE marking or formerly EC mark, is a mandatory conformity marking for products sold in the European Economic Area since 1993. The CE marking is the manufacturer's declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives. The actual meaning of "CE" has been disputed. It is often taken to be an abbreviation of Conformité Européenne, meaning "European Conformity". However, "CE" originally stood for "Communauté Européenne", French for "European Community". In former German legislation, the CE marking was called "EG-Zeichen" meaning "European Community mark". According to the European Commission, the CE logo has become a symbol for free marketability of industrial goods within the EEA.
