1. What is the CE mark?

In recent years, in the products sold in the European Economic Area (European Unon, European Free Trade Association member countries, except Switzerland), the use of CE marks has increased. The requirements expressed by a series of European directives such as environmental protection and consumer protection.

2. What does the letter CE mean?
In the past, European Community countries have different requirements for imported and sold products. Products manufactured according to one country's standards may not be listed in other countries. As part of the effort to eliminate trade barriers, CE came into being. Therefore, CE stands for CONFORMITE EUROPEENNE. In fact, CE is also the abbreviation of the phrase "European Community" in many languages of the European Community. Originally, the English phrase EUROPEAN COMMUNITY was abbreviated as EC. Later, the European Community was COMMUNATE EUROPEIA in French and COMUNITA EUROPEA in Italian. , Portuguese is COMUNIDADE EUROPEIA, Spanish is COMUNIDADE EUROPE, etc., so EC is changed to CE. Of course, you might as well regard CE as CONFORMITY WITH EUROPEAN (DEMAND) (in line with Europe (requirements)).

3. What is the significance of the CE mark
The significance of the CE mark is: the CE acronym is used as a symbol to indicate that the product affixed with the CE mark meets the essential requirements of the relevant European directives, and is used to verify that the product has passed the corresponding conformity assessment procedures and/or manufacturing The conformity declaration of the supplier has truly become a passport for the product to be allowed to enter the European Community market. The relevant directives require industrial products to be affixed with the CE mark. Without the CE mark, they shall not be sold on the market. Products that have been affixed with the CE mark and entered the market shall be ordered to be retracted from the market if they are found to not meet the safety requirements, and continue to violate the relevant CE marking requirements of the directive. , Will be restricted or prohibited from entering the EU market or forced to withdraw from the market.

4. Does the CE mark have the meaning of proving qualified quality?
The "main requirements" that form the core of the European Directives are required as the purpose of the formulation and implementation of the Directive in the "Resolution on New Methods of Technical Coordination and Standards" of the European Community (85/C136/01) on May 7, 1985. "Main requirement" has a specific meaning, that is, it is limited to the basic safety requirements of products that do not endanger the safety of humans, animals and goods, rather than general quality requirements. The coordination directive only specifies the main requirements, and the general directive requirements are standard tasks. If the product meets the relevant main requirements of the relevant directives, it can be attached with the CE mark, instead of determining whether the CE mark can be used in accordance with the general quality requirements of the relevant standards. Therefore, the precise meaning is: the CE mark is a safety conformity mark rather than a quality conformity mark.

A kite with a CE mark does not mean that it can fly well, but only that the kite meets safety regulations.
