CE stands for Conformité Européenne; it is not a mark of quality but indicates that the product that receives it complies with the requirements set by the Directive which should be referred to following the declaration of use decided by the manufacturer.
For example, medical stockings are classified as class 1a medical devices and are subject to the European Directive 93/42 / EEC. By affixing the ‘CE’ mark the producer or his legal representative declares that the product has been certified in conformity with the requirements.
The use of the CE marking is mandatory and gives the right to free movement throughout the local area to products covered by a Community Directive, which lays down the essential requirements so that they do not harm the health and safety of users or the environment.
In order to affix the CE marking on a product the producer must follow certain procedures: studio tests, documents attesting to certification of the product,the quality system and the manufacturing processes carried out.
The CE marking facilitates the verification of conformity of products, manufactured in third-party countries, which may do business within the common market.
