EU Strictly Fights Misuse of CE Certification Marks

See: 13 Time: 2014-11-11

CE certification mark is the passport for exporting products to EU countries, but if misused, it will be heavily punished. From January 1, 2010, relevant products will be exported to EU. If misused, the EU will be heavily punished.


It is understood that in 2008, the EU promulgated two regulations, 765/2008/EC and 768/2008/EC, aiming to strictly regulate CE certification marks in order to ensure product safety. The most prominent focus of the new regulations is to strengthen market supervision of CE certification marks. Specific measures include strengthening the responsibility of EU port customs to inspect the qualifications of imported commodities; stipulating that the qualifications assessment activities for products with CE certification marks shall be completed by designated assessment agencies; authorizing assessment agencies to notify EU member states of the procedures; stipulating that each member state shall have only one assessment agency whose assessment notifications are valid for the whole European region; and stipulating that manufacturers, distributors and importers shall be required to do so. The responsibility of the exporter is to refine the different modules of the conformity assessment procedure.


In addition to the specific strengthening measures of the above-mentioned regulations, domestic manufacturers and exporters should focus on interpreting the two messages conveyed by the new regulations: one is that the new regulations provide legal basis for Member States to impose legal sanctions against the misuse of CE certification marks; the other is that the European Commission plans to register CE marks so as to make them a collective trademark, and the form of trademarks will become the market supervision of member states'authorities. New tools of supervision and legal protection. The above information means that the misuse and abuse of CE certification marks on products that do not meet the requirements, or the incorrect use of circle letters in CE fonts and the errors in shape and size of CE certification marks with height less than 5 mm, will be severely curbed by the legal actions of EU member states. After the implementation of the new regulations, customs formalities, authorization policies and market supervision means should be ready by January 1, 2010.


According to the current regulations, industrial products sold in the EU market must be affixed with CE certification marks, otherwise they can not be listed for sale. Many important EU directives such as toy instruction (88/378/EEC), mechanical instruction (98/37/EEC), low voltage instruction (73/23/EEC, 2006/95/EC) require CE certification marks. CE certification mark is the most important and basic security line for EU to prevent the import of substandard products. Its promotion of certification standards will have a far-reaching and comprehensive impact on domestic manufacturers. It may form a technical threshold for some products and reduce their export market share. In this regard, relevant enterprises need to enhance crisis awareness.


For this reason, the inspection and quarantine department suggests that enterprises concerned should raise their awareness of crisis, actively understand the latest EU regulations, policies and trends, especially pay attention to the understanding of the relevant provisions of CE certification marks, and eliminate the misuse of CE marks; timely CE certification of export products within the scope of EU directives to ensure that products meet EU requirements; awareness of environmental protection and safety and production technology parties. The details such as the traceability of raw materials to finished products, the safety and hygiene of production process, the size and shape of CE mark on product label should meet the requirements of EU CE certification and avoid export risks.
