Many building products must be CE marked so that they can be sold.
This applies in Europe.
The CE mark describes the product's properties.
It also shows who manufactured the product.
Everyone who manufactures building products describes them with the same methods. Therefore the CE mark makes it easier to trade with building products within Europe.
The CE mark for other types of products, for example, toys or other electrical products, means an approval.
But for building products the CE mark shows that the product's properties have been described in the same manner for entire Europe.
Those who use a building product must decide themselves whether it is appropriate to use. The information in the CE mark should help with this.
