Hi everyone,

My company manufactures material testing systems in the US. Our primary customer base is located in the States but we also receive inquiries from Europe. Is a CE mark required for all testing systems sold to European countries? Is this requirement set by EU customs or by each separate company?

Thanks for your help!

The CE-Mark requirements are mandated by the European Laws. There are many different directives. In your case, based on the description of the type of product you are involved with, the Machinery Directive seems to apply for sure, but there might be other Directives at play, as well.

Good luck.

I. Hot water boilers
J. In vitro diagnostic medical devices
K. Lifts
L. Low voltage devices (LVD)
M. Machinery
N. Measuring instruments

P. Noise emission in the environment
Q. Non-automatic weighing instruments
