Why is CE Marking Important?

The CE Marking is a mandatory requirement that allows you to trade products in the EEA (European Economic Area) without restrictions. By affixing the CE Marking to a product, a manufacturer declares that the product meets all the legal requirements for CE Marking and can be sold throughout the EEA. This applies to products made within the EEA and also to products made in other countries that are sold in the EEA. UL seamlessly guides you through every step of the compliance process to meet EEA market access requirements.
