I. Introduction to CE Certification in the European Union
The "CE" mark is a security certification mark and is considered a passport that the manufacturer opens and enters the European market. CE stands for European Unification (CONFORMITE EUROPEENNE) and is a compulsory certification in Europe. CE mark is a "pass" for products to enter the markets of EU countries and EU Free Trade Association countries. Any specified product, whether produced outside the EU or in EU member States, must comply with the Directive and the relevant harmonized standards and be marked with the CE mark before it can be placed on the EU market for free circulation.
II. Importance of battery CE certification
As the accessories of many end products (such as mobile phones, electric toys, etc.), the safety of battery needs to be considered in combination with these end products. Therefore, many end product customers require that their components should also be affixed with CE mark for the sake of their own product safety, so that their products can better meet the requirements of relevant instructions. Obtaining CE certification from the EU-appointed body for battery products can maximize the trust of consumers and market watchdogs and effectively prevent irresponsible accusations. In the face of litigation, the CE certification of the EU designated agencies will become technical evidence with legal effect.
