CE Mark Information

Besides contacting the Illinois SBDC International Trade Center at Bradley University, there is a wealth of information about the CE Mark on the internet. Some good sites to review are:

  • The U.S. Department of Commerce's Trade Information Center (TIC) has a detailed website discussing the CE Mark which is a great first step for anyone with questions on the CE Mark.
  • The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) has also complied an information sheet on the CE Mark.
  • The homepage for standards for the European Union and European Free Trade Area. The section on "Directives and Standards" lists what each standards are required for each product category.
  • Homepage of the European Union. This site includes news, official documents, and links to all EU institutions.
