The CE mark is the passport for products, guaranteeing their free movement in the European Economic Area
In order to be marketed within the European Economic Area (EEA), the products must meet the technical criteria detailed in EU legislation on applicable harmonisation, including the placement of the
logo on products and providing supporting documents, irrespective of where a product is manufactured. The CE mark guarantees access to the Single European Market.
AENOR is a body that has been notified by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, or the
Ministry of Public Works and Transport and is included
accredited by the
National Accreditation Entity (ENAC) in
ten Directives and Regulations on the CE mark.
CE mark certification can be integrated with ISO 9001 quality management system certifications.
The CE mark is the result of a conformity assessment process, in which notified certification bodies such as AENOR can take part. For this reason,the manufacturer or authorised representative assume the responsibility for the provisions declared, and conformity with the requirements of the CE mark.
CE Marks demonstrate that a product complies with the requirements provided for by European Directives or Regulations and the EN technical standards (European standards), if appropriate, that apply to the marketing of said product.

However, they are not an indicator of suitability, functionality or operational safety. The technical staff responsible for constructing the product must check that it is suitable for use in a specific project based on the requirements set forth in the specifications and relevant national, regional or municipal regulations.
