CE Marking for Mechanical Engineering
Invest NI can provide Brexit help and advice for your business, find out more >> Get ready for Brexit
CE Marking is mandated by European Directives. Many products are covered by these directives and, to be placed on the European market, must bear the 'CE' mark- it's a legal requirement.
Whatever outcome there is to Brexit negotiations it will remain vitally important for companies to make sure that their product technical files and risk analyses are comprehensive, up to date and clearly documented whether products are being sold in the UK or in the EU.
CE marking is the claim that the product or machine meets the essential requirements of all relevant Directives, which can then be legally supplied and move freely throughout 31 European countries. When managed properly, it also enhances product credibility and leads to improved marketability and greater customer confidence & satisfaction.
This course is based primarily on the Machinery Directive. It provides guidance to compliance and assists participants to determine the route that is most appropriate, cost-effective and efficient for their product. For the majority of companies, CE marking is a self-certification process and involves an evaluation of the product or machine using risk assessments and relevant standards.
The course will be interactive and participative, with opportunities for discussion. On completion, participants should:
- Have gained an understanding of the statutory requirements involved;
- Understand technical requirements and interpret compliance standards;
- Be able to apply risk assessment techniques relevant to CE marking;
- Understand the CE marking process and identify the best route to compliance.
