The CE Mark Process

A one day course for exporters to the European Union
The world's most efficient and safe product compliance system will be explained
The 27 members of the EU as a bloc constitute one of Australia's largest trading and investment partners.  Since its inception, the EU has worked towards removing so-called technical barriers to trade.  The technical barriers had arisen due to the differing technical standards and rules between countries and suppliers to these markets were faced with the daunting task of proving that their products met each an every standard and rule for different countries.  In 1992 the European Community signed and agreement that allows products that comply with EU requirements to be marketed freely within the EU.
The EU standards and conformity system is based on two principles:
  •  Mutual recognition, which means that any product which is lawfully manufactured and sold in one Member State can be sold throughout the EU, and
  •  Technical harmonisation through EC directives which replace non-uniform national regulations
