Ce Certification

Why CE Marking?

The European CE marking regulation has been mainly set up to:

1. Harmonize all varying national regulations for consumer and industrial products in European Member States, so that the Single Market is encouraged;
2. Bring about cost savings for producers;
3. Enhance the safety of products;
4. Supply public bodies with a uniform procedure that can be checked.In the past, product requirements and test procedures in Europe were set by the individual Member States of the European Union. This meant that, for example, companies that wanted to sell their products on the European market sometimes had to deal with more than ten different technical requirements or procedures for just one product. The existence of all the different national legislation was contrary to the aim of the European Union in realizing one Single Market, in which there would be a free circulation of goods (as well as a free circulation of persons, services and capital).

All the different product requirements brought many costs for the producers. With the help of the CE marking Directives or ‘New Approach’ Directives, the measures have been optimized by setting up European (European-wide) requirements, the harmonization of national legislation and directives, standards and mutual recognition of the technical standards, tests methods (compliance tests) and test laboratories, so that producers no longer need to adapt their products to the different markets.

During the process of harmonization the safety level of all products was attuned and raised. In most European countries, safety and health had already been the subject of directives for many years but the safety level was not always satisfactory.

With the help of the conformity assessment procedures, the authorities can ascertain that the products that are placed on the market comply with the requirements as stated in the regulations of the directives. The CE marking is consequently largely for the benefit of the authorities. However, safe products are also necessary for the end user in the work or consumer environment.

What is Radiated Emission test?

What is Radiated Emission test?

Radiated Emission is only one of the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) tests. It is a test that must be performed in an anechoic chamber  or Open Area Test Site (OATS) after the EMC standard has been determined. This standard has to be determined according to the product. Radiated Emission testing is to determine whether the intended product is below a certain level of unwanted electromagnetic frequencies. If the measurement results of a product is under the limit value stated on the standard, this test is counted as PASS. If measurements exceed the limit, it is necessary to make improvements on the product in terms of design change or EMC. The work done on this kind of product is R & D work and it is very essential for manufacturers.

The measurement frequency range of Radiated Emission tests usually starts from 30 MHz and can be up to 1 GHz, 2 GHz or 6 GHz depending on the product specification and the standard applied. Measurements are made via antennas designed for specified frequencies and measuring devices called EMI Receivers. The measurement distance between the product and the antenna is typically 3 meters or 10 meters. It is also possible to change the limits according to the measurement distance. For instance, a limit value of 40 dBuV/m at 3 meters can be reduced to 30 dBuV/m at 10 meters.

Radiated Emission test is one of the most basic tests of EMC tests and is a test that the product designers need to be aware of. Precautions related to the EMC testing of a product must be initiated at the design stage of the product and should continue during the serial production phase. Even when the product is at the end user, precautions should be followed.

Incorrect CE Marking and manufacturer responsibility

CE Marking is mandatory for a wide variety of products including all electrical / electronic devices, allowing manufacturers to import and export their products freely within the European Union, with common product design and manufacturing requirements defined within EU Directives. 

By placing the mandatory conformity mark on a product, manufacturers (or if outside of the EU, the importer or authorised representative) are providing a clear indication that it meets all the relevant requirements and should therefore enjoy free movement between all 28 Member states.

Problems with the CE Mark

In recent years, however, Europe has seen an increasing number of goods incorrectly marked with the CE Mark flooding the market from foreign countries. The reasons for this have been three-fold:

  • Firstly, there has been much confusion around the CE Mark itself with similar marks from China often confusing consumers and being mistaken for the genuine CE Mark.
  • Secondly, the CE Mark has been illegitimately placed on products which do not require the Mark, giving consumers the false impression that the product is one of quality.
  • Thirdly, the CE Mark does not represent a product having undergone safety testing but rather a self-declaration mark from the manufacturer to allow the product’s free movement across Europe. The CE Mark’s aim is to provide a clear indication that a product meets the requirements of relevant CE marking directives and therefore should not be stopped at Member State borders.
Who is responsible?

Under CE Marking, manufacturers are responsible for undertaking a full risk analysis, complying with essential requirements and ensuring that they can provide evidence of having done so. If a harmonized standard applies to the product, the manufacturers have a duty to apply it. An additional duty the manufacturer will also now have is to determine if the standard is fully adequate for the product and its environment, or if the product requires further safety testing before being placed on the open market.

Whilst the vast majority of EU manufacturers are very thorough in ensuring they invest in meeting these standards, there has been criticism that manufacturers from a small number of EU member states have not been so rigorous. This has allowed cheaper, potentially unsafe products to enter the market.

Achieving CE compliance

Reassuringly, market surveillance authorities across the EU are addressing this issue with more active policing of CE Marking. This will ensure a more level playing field for manufacturers across the whole of the EU and will make sure that the CE Mark retains its status as a mark in which trust can be placed.

Achieving CE compliance can be a complex process due to the requirements of individual directives, particularly when combinations of directives apply simultaneously. For the key EU product safety and communications directives, Ege Test Center is able to provide expert help and guidance to support products through the relevant testing process.

CE Certificate and Machinery Safety Regulation

CE Certificate, developed in the framework of the European Union and Turkey’s technical harmonization and produced is a mark of conformity indicating that the product has a basic minimum level of safety.This mark is not related to quality assurance such as ISO 9001 and so on. The CE Certificate is a sign indicating that the product meets the minimum safety requirements in terms of human health, life and property safety, animal, plant life and environment as well as the protection of the consumer.

For many products, CE Mark / Mark is a brand that can be printed with the company seeing itself as sufficient.However, without don’t make any tests for product,without preparing technical files, CE marking without taking the opinion of an expert is a large risk taken institutionally.

As a result, because of the problems that may occur in their products, companies may have to face the penalties they cannot afford.

The basic requirements of the machines, information such as the minimum safety conditions, It is stated in the directive 2006/42 / AT published by the EU Council.In addition, the machines are also covered by the Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulation and the Low Voltage Directive.

All machines must comply with the rules specified in these Regulations. In order to shed light on how the basic conditions and safety conditions stated in the regulations are provided, the documents issued by the Council of the EU shall be issued by the organizations.These documents are called “Standard”  Design and production in accordance with the standards shall ensure that the produced machine complies with the requirements of the Regulation.
EN Standards are prepared by European Standard Organizations such as CEN, CENELEC, EIC and ETSI.
These standards are transformed into the National Standard by the member countries. In short, they become Harmonized Standard.

For example;
IEC 60204-1, ISO 12100:2010
EN 60204-1, EN ISO 12100:2010
TS EN 60204-1 , TS EN ISO 12100:2010

Standard Types according to the Machinery Safety Regulation
The EN Standards for Safety are evaluated in three groups as A, B and C Type Standards;

A-General Safety Standards
B-Risk Groups Standards
C-Standards for Products
Type A Standards
Type A Standards determine the basic design principles and basic rules that apply to all machines.Applying these standards only provides a basic framework for the correct implementation of the Machinery Safety Regulation, the implementation of the regulation is not sufficient for the relevant basic health and safety rules.

For example:
TS EN ISO 12100:2010 Safety for machines – General principles for design– Risk assessment and risk reduction
The provisions of this standard apply to all machines.

Type B Standards
B-type standards are machine safety standards used in a wide range of machine categories. Type B Standards are sufficient to meet the essential requirements of the Machinery Safety Regulation for most machinery and product groups.

Type B Standards Standards that provide the way security is provided. Applies only to machines with associated risk.

For example:
TS EN ISO 13849-1 Safety in machines – Safety-related parts of control systems – Part 1: General principles for design

Type C Standards
C type standards are special products applied for products. C type Standards may refer to standards type A and type B. Detailed safety standards for a specific machine or machine group.

For example:
TS EN ISO 11111-2 Textile machinery – Safety rules – Part 2: ready to spinning and spinning machines

Why is the EMC test necessary?

Today’s world is constantly witnessing technological developments and developing technology brings with it a number of adjustment problems. Technology, which has become an indispensable part of our lives, from phone, computer, toaster, television, cnc machine, electric motors in our daily and business life.

All this is a necessary requirement for the minimum security level of the devices and systems around us, without being affected and affected by other systems and devices in the environmentTests (Electromagnetic Compatibility Test) for testing the systems and devices to meet the required electromagnetic compatibility conditions are called the EMC Test.

To give examples of the importance of the EMC test in daily life, television and different electronic devices plugged into the same power outlet, fluctuating on the television screen,mobile phones can affect vehicle ABS systems, leakage of printed circuits, noise on the computer when talking with mobile phone.

All these negativities will cause malfunction of the products and cause serious accidents.In this respect, Electromagnetic Compatibility is of great importance.

The electrical product or electronic product must be made in accordance with the CE Mark / Marking in order to market the machine.It must be in accordance with the mandatory standards established under the 2014/30 / EU Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulation. This compliance should be ensured by testing and reporting according to the relevant standards.

In our EMC Test Laboratory you can use EMC Test service according to the relevant standards.

CE Mark Usage Rights and Application Cost

CE standards, which represent the lowest level of production safety that can be accepted by the European Union, show that the product to be sold will have features that work in harmony with other products, systems and equipment in use.In accordance with the protocols established by the European Standardization Committee, the necessary tests and the preparation of the documents described in the legislation are organizations that provide assistance to manufacturers make applications for CE mark usage rights as businesses that have completed their international accreditation. The CE certificate fees requested by these authorities vary depending on which class the product is in which the manufacturer is applying for, and thus which inspections are requested for approval.

Producers who want to bring their products to the market in all member countries by taking advantage of free movement rights in the European Union receive CE certificate; means to prove that the product it produces is not harmful to human, environment and other living things. Although the producers are generally researched about the CE certificate prices that are requested by the authorized companies, our country is also involved in the adaptation process,Although the producers are generally researched about the CE certificate prices that are requested by the authorized companies, our country is also involved in the adaptation process, many private and public tenders today, CE marking standards in products even if the choice of compliance is not forgotten. and need to do research on indexing production to these standards. In the near future, the scope of products that need to bear CE marking is extended and all products may be required to meet these production safety and compliance standards. For those who want to export in EU countries, it is not optional to meet the CE marking standards.

CE certificate, which is not related to the legal entity of the company, may require additional application for each product depending on the characteristics and usage areas of the products produced.
