What Products Are Required To Have CE-mark In UK

Many consumer goods such as toys and electrical appliances sold in the UK must be CE marked. The CE marking indicates that the product meets certain legal requirements related to safety, health, and the environment. It can be recognized by the letter "CE".

You can consider the goods safety marking to ensure the product has been assessed by the manufacturer and deemed to meet EU safety, health, and environmental protection requirements. Here are some points mentioned to be considered.

The company responsible for affixing the CE mark

Manufacturers must check that their products meet the requirements and have the CE mark. The manufacturer must also affix the CE mark on the product. If the product is manufactured outside the European Economic Area (EEA), the importer must check that the product meets the requirements and bears the CE mark.

Construction product CE marking

The CE marking has been required for many construction products since 2012. A performance declaration has also been required since 2013. It contains product information and contact information. Manufacturers, importers of construction products, and dealers must submit a performance declaration with their products. 

CE mark verification

Several agencies in the Netherlands are testing products that must bear the CE mark. For example, the Dutch Food and Consumer Safety Authority assesses whether gas equipment meets legal requirements. And the employment agency is testing the device in an explosive environment. 

Products that do not meet the requirements of the CE marking

Products that do not meet legal requirements may not receive the CE mark. This applies only if the CE marking is required for this product group. The product then cannot be sold. If the testing center finds a product with the wrong CE mark, it can take various actions. For example, a manufacturer may need to adapt or withdraw a product.
