CE Mark Safety Testing
CE Marking (Conformité Européene or European Conformity)
CE testing is a crucial aspect of product safety and regulatory compliance in Europe. The CE Mark certifies that a product meets the European Union’s standards for EMC and safety.
CE Mark Safety Testing
Companies planning to sell electronics in Europe will now be able to test them against four CE Mark safety standards in Draper, UT. These standards protect users from potential threats such as excessive heat, electrical shock, and mechanical failure.
In Europe, many electronic devices are required to pass such testing before they can be sold to the public. Safety testing is performed in controlled lab environments by test engineers who use specialized equipment to poke, prod, burn, and impede devices to confirm that they can be safely operated by the public.
Safety testing covers thermal, electrical, and mechanical risk areas. For an electronic device to pass testing it must:
- Remain at a safe operating temperature to avoid injury or accidental flame
- Have sufficient insulation to avoid user shock
- Demonstrate that it is mechanically sound
