CE Mark Testing
The Latest International Standards & Specifications
GME is an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory testing products for compliance with the European Union Directives. We use the latest international EMC/electrical-safety standards and electronics specifications.
The EMC laboratory is equipped with the essential conducted emissions, electrostatic-discharge and magnetic immunity capabilities. Conducted disturbance testing includes electrical fast transients, surges, radio-frequency noise, and voltage variations. Radiated emissions testing is done on the Open Area Test Site, and radiated-immunity tests are performed in the anechoic shielded chamber.
Product safety measurement capabilities include electric strength, leakage current, insulation resistance, and ground bond. Environmental test capabilities include dry heat to 175ºC, humidity to 99%, and cold to -40ºC.
CE Testing Can Be Performed on Equipment in The Following Groups:
- Medical (ISM)
- Information-technology (ITE)
- Automatic identification systems (AIS)
- and more…
Basic Steps to Putting the CE Mark on Products to Be Shipped Into the EU:
Decide Which Directives Apply to Your Export Product
- Electromagnetic Compatibility
- Electrical (Low-Voltage) Safety
- Machinery Safety
- Medical Devices
- Radio Equipment
The equipment manufacturer identifies the proper directives that apply to a product. For example, if the product is equipped with moving parts, the machinery safety standard will apply.
Determine Which Standards Apply and Perform Tests
After choosing the directives that apply, a manufacturer then selects the applicable harmonized (EN) product standards and performs the required tests. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) writes many EN standards. GME is available to answer questions about standards, as well as perform tests.
Declaration of Conformity
When a product is tested and determined to be in compliance with applicable standards, a Declaration of Conformity (DoC) is created in accordance with ISO/IEC 17050-1/2. Reports generated by the test lab, as well as design documentation, act as “supporting documentation” in validating the DoC. Test records, drawings, risk analysis, etc., and the DoC are held on file and made available at any time for review by “competent authorities”. A copy of the DoC should be submitted to your distributor, representative, or importer in the EC. It is also good practice to include a copy of your DoC in your instruction manual.
To show proof of conformity, the EU makes it mandatory for the manufacturer to label the product with the CE mark. The label, “CE”, must be attached in an indelible manner, look like the CE in the EU artwork, and be no less than 5-mm in dimension. Whether reduced or enlarged the proportions given above must be maintained. The marking should be affixed to the product, or if this is not possible, to the packaging, instructions for use, or warranty certificate.
