CE marks appear on many products that are traded in the single market in the European Economic Area (EEA).
The CE mark is required on many products and is a guarantee that:
- the product meets EU safety, health or environmental requirements
- is an indicator of the product’s compliance with EU legislation
- enables the free movement of products on the European market
All products placed on the market or put into service in Poland and other European Union countries must meet the essential and detailed safety requirements described in the relevant legal regulations.
The CE mark is not used for marketing and commercial purposes, nor does it determine the origin of the product, nor does it prove its quality. The CE marking is also not a safety mark. The CE mark on the product means that it meets all the requirements of the New Approach directives and that it has undergone appropriate conformity assessment procedures, which ended with a positive assessment. The entity placing the product on the market is obliged to complete the activities related to the conformity assessment of this product before making it available. In Poland, the legal act regulating these issues is the Act on the Conformity Assessment System.
