CE marking - with a focus on electrical products

All companies selling products on the European market must be able to demonstrate that the products meet applicable EU requirements, e.g. according to the Low Voltage Directive, LVD. The CE marking is the manufacturer's declaration to the authorities that the product complies with all regulations imposed on it on the basis of relevant directives.

The consequence of not having full control of its CE marking can be costly if there is an incident with the product or if the product does not pass a market control by the responsible authority. Welcome to our basic training for you who need a better overall knowledge of the basics of CE marking. The training provides increased knowledge about product responsibility and product safety, what is required to CE mark and who is responsible for the product. This knowledge is central to many, but specifically to buyers, product managers and management teams.
