CE marking was created by European legislation; it is the visual symbol affixed to products that indicates their compliance with the requirements of one or more “New Approach” directives in force in all member states.

It is essentially a passport that allows products to move freely throughout the European Union.

Take part in this training to:

  • Find out about the specifics of CE marking
  • Understand the major steps in the process
  • Understand the differences with North American certification
  • Better plan your export efforts to Europe

The activity will be held in French.
