Re: Class 1 Medical Device Labeling and CE Marking Requirement

sir, actually what i have is a case where we were given very limited information.
the company is a toy manufacturing company. it states that:
"It is the responsibility of the toy company and the manufacturer to ensure that the product
meets the safety regulations and that the “CE” marking is fixed on the product. The company cannot delegate this responsibility."
then, at the end of the year the company encountered a problem in one of their toys with regards to poor insulation. hence, they have to pull back that particular product.

I am thinking if the fact that they don't conform with the CE Marking can be associated with this recent problem.

thank you so much for your help, sir. :)

Re: Class 1 Medical Device Labeling and CE Marking Requirement

I'm a little confused by your post.

A company can conform to the directive and the law and still encounter problems. They then initiate a recall in accordance with the directive/law and correct the problem.

Just because a company finds a fault with their product and initiates a recall does not mean that they did not comply with the directive

Re: Class 1 Medical Device Labeling and CE Marking Requirement

i myself am not very knowledgeable about the ce marking..

but i am certain that this toy manufacturing company does not conform to the ce marking.
so honestly, i am just making assumptions based from that.

can i just ask you a question about CE marking since the articles i've read in the internet barely help..

1. are every company based in europe has to conform with the CE marking? if yes, what is the consequence of not conforming with the CE marking?

thank you so much!

Re: Class 1 Medical Device Labeling and CE Marking Requirement

There are a number of directives and regulations (laws) in europe that require CE marking. The capture a range of products (listed blow). If your product is within the scope of the specific regulation it requires a CE mark. If it does not, you are not permitted to put a CE mark on the product.

The consequence of not putting a CE mark on, or putting one on where there should be varies between member states and on the severity. The majority of of times it will result in a letter from the appropraite authority essentially saying "you must comply with the regulations". If you ignore this you are liable to fines.

That question doesn't seem to be related to the applicability of standards and the CE Mark system.

I'd think you might get better answers to your business-plan questions in a business forum.
