self assessment wide

The CE marking procedure is one of self-certification.Generally, you can do everything yourself and the steps below will guide you through the process. However Conformance, and a small number of other consultancies, exists because the CE marking process can be extremely complicated and time consuming. It also requires a detailed knowledge of the directives and standards relevant to your product.  The only cases where it is not possible for the manufacturer/importer to do everything themselves are when the relevant directives specifically state that a Notified Body must be involved in the assessment of the products.

Our CE Marking Specialists can advise you at any or all of the following stages should you require our help.


Decide which CE marking Directives apply to your product

Here you can find a summary of each of the principle European Directives and Regulations with links to the full text of the directives themselves as well as sources of further information relating to the directives. The directive will define which products need Notified body involvement.

Under the New Legislative Framework the revised directives are now in force. The UK government has an obligation to enact these directives into UK law however this process was delayed but is currently on-going.

Guidance from The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) advises that economic operators should comply with the requirements of the new directives from 20th April 2016 and products placed on the market after this date should be compliant with, and consequently have a declaration of conformity against, the new Directives.
