Part 1: It’s all about the market

  • The CE marking directives exist to create a single market. Harmonisation of safety requirements is how this is generally achieved, although this is not the sole reason that the directives exist. Increasingly the requirements and new directives have been focusing on the environment as well as safety.
  • All EEA states are committed to implementing the same rules.
  • The EEA includes the EU plus Norway, Iceland, and Lichtenstein. In practice Switzerland also accepts CE marking.
  • Due to the globalisation of standards, the design requirements are also very similar in places such as Australia, New Zealand, China, and Canada.
