Fundamentals of CE Marking
Description: Join the experts at Washington Laboratories with a deep dive
into the requirements for Europe. This workshop will examine the
requirements for EMC, Product Safety, Radio and related regulatory
requirements for complying with the Directives that govern
equipment compliance for the 300million+ population of the EU.
In the nearly 20 years since the establishment of the CE Marking
for product, trade with the European Union has bloomed. This is
due in large part to the harmonization of technical requirements
and the internationalization of the product standards. This has
opened the door for US manufacturers to place their products into
the global swirl of trade.
