KNOWLEDGE BASE CE Marking In Germany



CE marking is an important part of taking a physical product into Germany and anywhere in the European Union (EU). For most products to gain access to Germany, which is part of the EU, you will have to have CE marking on your product and extensive testing to meet EU standards prior to market testing.  Globig has compiled information to help you determine if your product requires CE marking, how best to get CE marking, how long it takes, and how costly it is. We also recommend that you speak with an attorney if your product requires a CE mark.
