More on the CE mark

Wow, there are a lot of skeezy CE Mark firms, eager to collect fees.  I've been wading through it some, and it sounds like my company can self-certify my product.  What this seems to mean is that Plankton Games declares its product safe officially (there's a form for this) and then it assumes all liability for the product, and then it can use the mark.  This is a good source; I'm looking for others.
Disclaimer: I'm NOT an expert - please do your own research. 


  1. If were only that easy.
    First you must determine what Directives your product falls under. Then you must comply with the requirements of that Directive/s. This means compilation of a Technical File. Only then can you complete a Declaration of Conformity and include it with your product. There are other requirements such as having an Authorized Representative in Europe.
    It is not as simple as filling out a form.

  2. I'm pretty sure that's the way it used to be, but there seems to be a new way to self-certify in some cases. I'm not sure these cases apply to me, but the FAQ I link to above pretty clearly states that they sometimes apply depending on what your product is. I need to look into it more closely.
