Today, CE Certification is the only compulsory certification procedure in the European Union, confirming the compliance of products with European quality standards and providing access to the European market. This CE marking of goods can not be used in advertising or marketing purposes or to apply voluntarily for the goods for which this type of certification is not provided.
