The CE mark is not a quality mark or symbol but a sign of conformity, which the manufacturer declares that the product meets the legal requirements and that the required conformity procedures have been successfully followed. Abuse or illegal use of the CE mark is a criminal offense.
Too often there are products on the market that contain the CE mark but the manufacturer has not (yet) followed the statutory procedure compliance. These PPE often do not meet minimum health and safety requirements and can be dangerous when using them.
For consumers, it is not always clear whether a PPE is actually allowed on the market.
Through SELECT you can find products that are legitimately CE marked.
