Part 1: It’s all about the market

  • The CE marking directives exist to create a single market. This is generally achieved by harmonisation of safety requirements, 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.
