Uniform standards are becoming more important every day. This has also infected the role of CE marking in recent years. On the European market, CE marking is no longer indispensable, since it assures a uniform production of a product or a plant in accordance with the applicable directives and standards.
The service of CEfAM refers to the CE marking of automation systems according to the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This includes, in particular, the research and examination of essential standards that must be adhered to during the production of a plant as well as the preparation of a risk analysis in the course of the CE conformity procedure. After the CE conformity has been ascertained, the EC declaration of conformity and the affixing of a CE marking are issued. The plant therefore officially is compliant with the respective EU standards.
Due to a steadily growing number of directives and standards as well as a further expanding commercial connection within the European Economic Area, the CE mark will continue to gain in importance.
The letters "CE" were originally intended for "Communauté Européenne", in the European Community (EC). Today, the CE mark has no longer a literary meaning, but is a symbol of the free trade of products in the European Union (EU). The motivation for the creation of the CE marking is primarily to ensure safe products for end-users within the European Economic Area.
With the CE marking, the manufacturer, according to EU Regulation 765/2008, declares that the plant or the product complies with the applicable requirements laid down in the harmonization rules of the European Community (EC directives).
