The CE mark is a mandatory conformity mark on many products sold in the single market European Economic Area (EEA). The CE mark certifies that a product has met EU consumer safety, health, or environmental requirements.
The following is an excerpt from the European Commission's site:
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 27 Member States of the EU and European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein). This also applies to products made in other countries which are sold in the EEA.
The CE mark is a declaration by Hope Industrial that the product conforms with applicable requirements set out in EU law necessary before applying the mark. In order for an industrial monitor or related product to display the CE mark, Hope Industrial products have met some or all of the following Directives:
|Low Voltage Directive||Products with a voltage rating of 50-1000 VAC or 75-1500 VDC||2014/35/EU|
|Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive||Apparatus liable to cause electromagnetic disturbance or which is liable to be affected by such disturbance||2014/30/EU|
|RoHS Directive||Restriction Of the use of Hazardous Substances||2011/65/EU with 2015/863/EU amending Annex II|

RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) is an included requirement for displaying a CE mark and restricts the use of some hazardous substances in electronics and electrical equipment sold in Europe. The Directive bans selling new products that contain more than specified levels of the following materials in the EU market: lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants.
RoHS Directive 2015/863/EU amends the directive above and adds four additional substances, Bis(2-Ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), Benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP), Dibutyl phthalate (DBP), Diisobutyl phthalate (DIBP).
RoHS-compliant parts must have less than or equal a maximum concentration of 0.1% (by weight) of lead, hexavalent chromium, mercury, PBB, PBDE, DEHP, BBP, DBP, DIBP and 0.01% for cadmium, unless the parts qualify for an exemption.
