Elite's Connected Conformity Process for CE and UKCA Marking

Elite can test and type-approve for CE Marking of electronic and wireless devices to meet European Union Directives and UK Regulations.  Our  services offer manufacturers convenience, cost savings, and assurance that their products are compliant and ready for market in a timely manner.

Elite’s Connected Conformity Process- Takes you from start-to-market.  We begin by understanding your product and its application, then we outline a plan for your conformity steps and define the tests, documents, labels, and information you will need to become compliant and market ready.  We certify your products when necessary and help you broaden you reach with our global market access partner Global Validity.  Lastly, we will help you remain compliance when your product or the compliance requirements change.

Start by Contacting Our CE and UKCA Compliance Specialists

Elite’s experts are accessible!   Clients can easily connect with our staff to discuss compliance questions and learn about regulations and services.  We review your product and application to determine the scope of  requirements and to develop the suite of testing and services.  Next, our team leaders prepare the client for testing and confirm conformity details.  From there, we guide the process through any related services, and continue all the way to conclusion and market access.

European Union CE Marking

European Union Directives and Harmonized Standards

There are nearly 30 New Approach Directives in the European Union that establish the essential requirements for a wide range of manufactured products.  The Directives provide a framework for compliance by defining the scope of applicability and by specifying the conformity assessment processes, along with many other legal and administrative details.   When manufacturers meet all applicable Directives they signify compliance by labelling their products with the CE Mark.   Several of the Directives that Elite offers servicers are:

2014/53/EURadio Equipment Directive
2014/30/EUEMC Directive
2014/35/EULow Voltage Directive
92/42/EECMedical Devices Directive
2006/42/ECMachinery Directive

While the Directives provide the framework and overview of the CE Marking obligations, the technical requirements are specified in Harmonized Standards called Euro-Norms (EN’s).  These ENs are developed through consensus by Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO),  International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and Comite International Special des Perturbations Radioelectriques (CISPR).   Manufacturers that comply with EN harmonized standards in full are afforded the presumption of conformity for their products.    Several common and important Harmonized Standards include:

EN 55032 & EN 55035Emissions and Immunity for ITE
EN 61326-1Measurement, Control, Lab Use
EN 60601-1-2Medical Electronics
EN 55014-1 & EN 55014-2Household Appliances, Tools, and Similar Apparatus
EN 61000-6-xGeneric EMC Standards
EN 301 489-xRadio Equipment EMC

 

United Kingdom UKCA Regulations

The United Kingdom (UK), in particular England, Wales, and Scotland have a regulatory compliance process that is separate from that in the European Union.    While being separate, the regulatory processes are very similar and the UK technical standards are identical in nearly all cases to EN standards for CE Marking.  Manufacturers that establish compliance with the UK regulations through harmonized standards or other means label their products with the UKCA mark.

Electromagnetic Compatibility Regulations 2016
Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016
Radio Equipment Regulations 2017
Supply of Machinery (Safety) Regulations 2016
Medical Devices through EU Directive 93/42/EEC
