The CE marking certifies that a product has met EU health, safety, and environmental requirements, which ensure consumer safety. Manufacturers in the European Union (EU) and abroad must meet CE marking requirements where applicable in order to market their products in Europe. For a list of countries that require the CE marking. A manufacturer who has gone through the conformity assessment process, may affix the CE marking to the product. With the CE marking, the product may be marketed throughout the EU. CE marking now provides product access to 27 countries with a population of nearly 500 million.

The "New Approach Directives" are documents that contain the legislation issued by the European Commission on the requirements that need to be met and procedures that must be followed in order for a particular product to be CE marked for sales in the EU.
Some examples for which manufacturers can self-certify include:
� Safety of Machinery Directive
� Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive
� Low Voltage Directive
� Class I products of the Medical Device Directive
� Most products covered by the Radio and Telecommunications Terminal Equipment (R&TTE) Directive
