CE MARKING - EU AUTHORISED REPRESENTATIVE

Products without CE marking will not be accepted for sales within the European market. The European legislation requires manufacturers to display CE Marking on their product, packaging and accompanying literature. CE Marking is a “Passaport” which allows products freely circulation within the EU Single market. Consumers will consider CE Marking on a product as an indication of conformity to lay down minimum standards, and therefore a minimum level of quality, that other products may lack.

CE marking is thus for many consumers a “Symbol of Quality”.

CE Marking on a product is a manufacturer’s declaration that the product complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislations, in practice by many of the so-called "product directives", which contains the “essential requirements” and / or “performance levels”, and “harmonized Standards” to which a product must conform.

CE Marking Directives require that manufacturers and exporters must be represented in Europe and/or maintain a copy of their Technical Files in Europe.

The most practical ways CE Marking may be achieved, which is preferred by many EU importers who are neither specialized in the complicated CE Marking process nor willing to take risk, is that the manufacturer designates an Authorized Representative in the EU, who will take care of the CE Marking issue, while the importers and/or distributors can focus on the marketing and sales of the products. The manufacturer may need only one Authorized Representative in EU whereas may have many importers and/or distributors. The Authorized Representative may in some cases register the product(s) in an EU Member State and thus obtain a Certificate of Registration. The Product Certificate of Registration for CE Marking obtained from an EU Member State is valid for the entire EU market.

In general, CE Marking is required if you want to sell, the following 23 groups of products:
air traffic management equipment & systems, appliances burning gaseous fuels, cableway installations to carry persons, construction products, electrical equipment, equipment and protective systems for explosive atmospheres, explosives for civil uses, hot water boilers, household refrigerators & freezers, lift, machinery, marine equipment, measuring instruments, medical devices, active implantable medical devices, in vitro diagnostic medical devices, non-automatic weighing equipment, personal protective equipment, pressure equipment, simple pressure vessels, recreational craft, radio equipment & telecommunications terminal equipment, toys and trans-European conventional rail system

Is therefore recommended that manufacturers and exporters appoint a third party to act as their Authorized Representative that is not commercially involved in the sale of its products but acts solely as its regulatory.

An Authorised Representative will represent the manufacturer with the CE Marking surveillance authorities. This is somehow similar to that you may need a lawyer representing you in the court.

A non-EU manufacturer needs only one Authorized Representative in the entire European Union whereas may have many distributors and/or sales agents. Most of the importers/distributors are skilled in marketing and sales, but not familiar with the complicated CE Marking issues.

It is required by the EU legislation that a non-EU manufacturer must print its EU Authorised Representative's name, address and contact information on the packaging/labelling of the product(s) sold into the EU & EEA market. The authorities from any of the EU & EEA Member States may call the Authorized Representative up for CE Marking vigilance at any time, and the Authorized Representative must respond immediately and properly within the permitted time.
