Comments Every month, dozens of products are either removed or recalled from the European Union (EU) market, because they pose serious risk to the health and safety of consumers and professional users. Interestingly, many of the products withdrawn or recalled from the market bear a CE marking. CE stands for Conformité Européenne, which means ‘in compliance with EU law’. By affixing a CE marking on a product, the manufacturer declares that it complies with all the prevailing EU requirements in relation to aspects such as safety, health and the environment. The audit was intended to find out why it is that there are products on the European market that do not comply with the relevant EU requirements and what the authorities are doing in order to prevent this from happening.
