The CE marking indicates a product’s compliance with European Union (EU) legislation and so enables the free movement of products within the European market. By affixing the CE marking to a product, a manufacturer declares, on his sole responsibility, that the product meets all the legal requirements for the CE marking, which means that the product can be sold throughout the European Economic Area (EEA, the 28 Member States of the EU and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein). This also applies to products made in other countries, which are sold in the EEA. GAC is certified CE compliant.
