Definition of CE mark in English:
A symbol applied to products to indicate that they conform with relevant EU directives regarding health and safety or environmental protection.
- Meeting the essential requirements is a major step toward receiving a CE mark for a device.
- All too often, fraudulent CE marks are slapped on products indiscriminately, reducing the system to a charade.
- The European approval with the CE mark is for a relatively narrow peripheral vascular application.
1980s: CE from the initial letters of French Conformité Européenne 'European Conformity' or Communauté Européenne 'European Community'.
