CE Certificate (EU Product Conformity Certificate)
CE certification is the process by which a CE mark can be affixed to a product. Ideally, CE certification should start at the product development stage, as some CE requirements are related to product safety, user health, and the environment, which is good to know during the product development stage. However, CE certification is available for ready-to-use products. CE-certified products must comply with European safety regulations and only then can they trade freely in the European Economic Area.
Six steps for CE certification
Depending on the product category, the CE certification scheme varies differently. The joint plan for CE certification includes the following steps:
1. Find the EU instructions that apply to your product.
2- Look for the essential requirements for your product.
3- Determine whether the product needs the evaluation of the announced body or not.
4. Evaluate product compliance.
5. Create and maintain technical documents.
6. Draw a declaration of conformity and affix the CE mark.

The certification body, which provides both the full CE certification and assists in every step of the certification process, also conducts risk assessments and designs and approves technical documentation.
