With the CE marking on a product, the manufacturer ensures that the product conforms with the essential requirements of the applicable EC directives.
Low VoltageDirective (2006/95/EC)
Article 1 states the Directive covers "any equipment designed for use with a voltage rating of between 50 and 1000 V for A.C. and between 75 and 1500 V for D.C,other than the equipment and phenomena listed in Annex II."
Depending on the level of risk of the product, the CE marking is affixed to a product by themanufacturer or authorized representative who decides whether the product meets all the CE marking requirements. If a product has minimal risk, it can be self-certified where manufacturersa Declaration of Conformity and affixes the CE marking to their own product. Manufacturer then must do several things:

▪ Module B – EC type-examination.
▪ Module C – Conformity to type.
