CE Certificate

What is Ce? (Conformity of Europe)

The European Union, which set out to be the most significant economic and political power globally, has developed various systems to harmonize technical standards among member countries. The essential purpose of these systems is to ensure that production is carried out with the same technical standards.

To achieve this technical harmonization, all standards are discussed in the EU Standards Commission. European Norms (EN) are established instead of the national standards of EU member states. These norms are then grouped (Machines, Toys, Pressure Vessels, Gas Appliances, Elevators, Fibers, Electrical Equipment etc.) to reveal EU directives.

Since the beginning of 1995, CE certificate/mark, which is an expression of conformity with EU norms, has started to be sought for imported into the EU, although most of them are not compulsory. This Sign indicates that the product has been produced and put on the market under the conditions determined by the directives.

There is a CE Certificate requirement for the products produced and exported in our country.

If there is no relevant mark on the products imported into the Community, the importer and the manufacturer will be responsible for the damage.

The CE certificate (mark) is a symbol that must be struck on the product by the manufacturer for the products specified in the directives to circulate freely within the European Union, indicating that the product complies with the health, safety and security requirements. It acts as a visa or passport in cross-border traffic within and between European Community countries. It is a product compliance commitment that is stored, protected and given to official authorities when asked.

Indicates the level at which the quality starts. The CE mark is an official mark and is valid in all EU countries. The CE mark is a mark struck by the manufacturer and is not a quality mark or guarantee. The CE mark is struck for the authorities, not the consumers. Products below this level are considered unsafe.

A product bearing the CE logo undertakes to:

  • Human safety,
  • Human health,
  • Life and property safety,
  • Environmental protection,
  • It predicts energy saving.

The CE mark is valid only when compliance with the conditions specified in the directives is met.

How to Use CE Mark?

Shot by the manufacturer/importer.

  • The CE mark indicates that EU-European Union Directives and Compliance procedures have been approved on the product.
  • The CE conformity mark bears the letters “CE”.
  • The CE mark must be at least 5 mm high when unique dimensions are not given.
  • The CE mark should be placed on the product or the label or plate with its information.
  • The CE mark must be selected, visible, legible and indelible.
  • The CE mark has to be placed at the last stage of the production control phase.
  • Creation of the Technical File:

– All technical information about the product.

– Instructions for use, manuals.

– Test Reports, if any.

– List of national and international standards used in production

– Supply list,

– Certificates and test reports if the supplied products are in CE Scope

– CE Certificate of Conformity.

If there is a danger in a product bearing the CE mark, the following measures are taken:

Member countries:

  • Pulls the product from the market.
  • It prevents the product from being placed on the market.
  • Prevents the use of the product.
  • Prevents free trade
  • Notifies the EU-European commission.
  • Penal sanction is applied.

The EU-European Commission informs the member states to take the above measures according to their borders.

What are the Features of CE Marking?

  • This mark is an official mark and is valid in all European Union countries as a European Conformity mark.
  • What has been done about this Sign is that EU regulations change national regulations. In other words, the rules in the countries’ laws do not have any validity with the entry into force of the EU regulations and must be brought into compliance with the relevant directive.
  • It shows that the criteria determined for the product with this Sign are complied with, and the necessary conformity studies have been carried out. Products with this Sign must comply with all criteria set in the relevant directives. It is impossible to put the mark on the product without fulfilling some of the requirements and fulfilling some of them.
  • The signs showing the countries’ national standards do not reveal the existence of the European Conformity mark. In other words, it is wrong to think that a product bearing the TSE stamp in our country will also have the CE mark. However, it can be said that products with CE marks also reflect a confident safety assurance for living things since it is obligatory to make legal regulations on a country basis for products that require the European Conformity mark.
  • Directives on this subject are prepared by the European Committee for Standardization (CENELEC) on issues agreed upon by the EU Commission, member states and EU Standardization Organizations. The accepted directive and related standards enter into force by being published in the EU Official Journal.

Nobody issues the European Conformity mark. There are notified bodies that carry out conformity assessments for high-risk products only in cases specified in the relevant directives within the EU. • Since the basic assumption regarding the European Conformity mark is that the manufacturer himself ensures and controls the product’s conformity with the relevant directive, he puts the European Conformity mark on the product himself. After the necessary conformity work is done for the products other than this, each organization can put the conformity mark on the product itself.

  • If an accident occurs due to a product bearing the CE mark, or if it is claimed by one of the EU members states that the requirements of the mark are not entirely fulfilled, the manufacturer has to prove that all the necessary criteria are met and that it is not a case of his fault. Therefore, when the mark is placed on the product, attention should be paid to the exact fulfilment of its requirements. There are significant risks in placing the Sign without the conditions being fully met, and the producer is penalized with heavy penalties.

Another factor that should be mentioned is that the expectations of the market regarding quality are met. The conditions for the creation of the internal market are:

  • Safety / Quality Products
  • Competence of Suppliers
  • Competence of Third Parties
  • Transparency Producers
