The CE Mark consists of the initials of the French words “Conformité Européenné”. Its meaning is “Conformity to Europe”.
The CE mark indicates that a product or product group complies with the basic requirements known as the product directives of the European Union on Health, Safety, Environment and Consumer Protection.
Product directives; determines which product should meet what kind of basic requirements and/or what performance level it should be.
While the regulations implemented in 1985 were initially used as “EC Mark”, this term was officially changed to “CE Marking” with the 93/68/EEC directive published in 1993.
It is currently used as CE Marking in all European Union countries.
The CE mark is a sign that the product can be legally placed in the market where it is sold. The CE mark is an indication that the product will be withdrawn unconditionally by the manufacturer in case of any nonconformity.
The CE mark is not a quality mark, it indicates that the product has been produced and controlled in accordance with all the conditions determined by the relevant directives.
The compliance processes of the product groups defined for CE were carried out by the Ministries, other public institutions and the Undersecretariat of Foreign Trade to which the product groups are subject.
In terms of our foreign trade, it is not possible to export the product that does not carry this mark to the European Union member countries.
In terms of our domestic market, it is not possible to put the products that are in the scope of the product regulations, which do not carry the CE Mark, to the market of our country.
