Principles of CE marking:
Marking CE - it is one of the conditions for the free movement of products on the European market.
Applied to product CE marking - a declaration of a person or entity that establishes or is responsible for the installation of marking that the product complies with all relevant requirements EU Directive, and that it has passed the appropriate conformity assessment procedures.
CE marking may be affixed only if registered in the EU resident who takes responsibility for the safety of the product and its compliance with European directives.

Before going to market the European Community, the manufacturer shall carry out the procedure of conformity assessment of products, provided for in the applicable EU directive, with the aim of marking CE.
third party conformity assessment is carried out by notified bodies that have been notified by the Member States of the number of bodies carrying out the requirements set out in the EU Directive, and established in their territory.
