BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE & FAQ

Which countries belong to the European Economic Area (EEA)?

The CE marking is mandatory for products in these thirty member states:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden

Which EU directives are explained in CE ESSENTIALS?

In CE ESSENTIALS, our GLOBALNORM product compliance experts present and analyze the Low Voltage Directive (2014/35/EU), Radio Equipment Directive (2014/53/EU), EMC Directive (2014/30/EU), RoHS Directive (2011/65/EU), ATEX Directive (2014/34/EU) and Machinery Directive (2006/42/EG).

Special points for product manufacturers

Manufacturers of serial products face the particular challenge of ensuring compliance throughout a series. That also includes monitoring applicable harmonized norms. Manufacturers must therefore have an appropriate product compliance management system (PCMS) in place. This will include an early-warning system to identify potential serious risks for end users after products have been put on the market. There is also an increased requirement for material and environmental compliance as set out in the RoHS and Ecodesign Directives.

Are the ESSENTIALS available in languages other than English?

No, our team of experts compiles, publishes and updates the ESSENTIALS in English only. English is the language of global communication, and is also used in most international companies.

But for some countries there may also be links to legislation, regulations, etc. in the local language.

What is a declaration of conformity and what is it for?

As set out in EN ISO/IEC 17050-1, a manufacturer declares that a product meets specific requirements. In the European Union these requirements can be specified in harmonization legislation (e.g. Toy Safety, Machinery, and Radio Equipment Directives; Medical Device Regulation). The manufacturer draws up an EU declaration of conformity (or a declaration of performance for construction products).

Which products do CE ESSENTIALS cover?

  • Radio equipment (including combination products such as industrial meters with 230 V AC and Wi-Fi function)

  • Electrical equipment (50 to 1000 V alternating voltage or 75 to 1500 V direct voltage)

  • Electrical equipment to be used in an explosion-proof environment

  • All types of electrical/electronic devices that can generate electromagnetic disturbance or be affected by it (e.g. microprocessor-controlled devices)

  • All types of plants and machinery

Special points for mechanical engineers

Mechanical engineers and plant manufacturers must meet the very detailed basic requirements of the Machinery Directive (Annex I). This includes performing a risk assessment. They need to determine which basic requirements are relevant to the type of machinery in question. The Machinery Directive also refers to a declaration of incorporation for partly completed machinery. And in the EU declaration of conformity or incorporation you must name the person who is authorized to compile the technical documents.
