  CE Marking
How a product complies with EU safety, health and environmental requirements, and how to place a CE marking on your product.

Each directive covering your product specifies whether an authorised third party (Notified Body) must be involved in the conformity assessment procedure necessary for CE marking.  This is not obligatory for all products, so it is important to check whether the involvement of a Notified Body is indeed required.  These Bodies are authorised by national authorities and officially 'notified' to the European Commission and listed in the NANDO (New Approach Notified and Designated Organisations) database.  Go to to find out more.
