CE Marking & Consulting Services

CE Compliance is required for many products, production tools and equipment to be supplied to, or sold in, the European market. CE marking tools and equipment involves assessments and testing in order to certify that your product adheres to European legislation.

With IES, you have a pragmatic and cost effective solution which encompasses every element of compliance and approval. Our CE marking consultants guide you through all the testing and evaluation which your product will need, preparing you for the Declaration of Conformity which completes the process. Our CE compliance tools and equipment service ensures that you tick all the boxes, allowing you to start using your machinery sooner, or bring your product to market quicker. 

The benefits of working with IES for CE Marking Tools and Equipment include:

  • The ability to complete on-site CE testing worldwide
  • Extensive European Product Directive experience, ensuring the most appropriate and cost effective procedures
  • A consulting and advisory approach to ensure we add value
  • Our own EMC test chamber
  • EMC, LVD and Machinery Directive compliance
  • Budget friendly remedial solutions
  • Projects delivered on time, and on budget
  • Site survey assessment capability
  • Large installation survey capability
  • Exemplary health and safety management 

How Quick & Safe CE Marking Prepared New Machinery for Action

The IES CE Marking production tools consultancy service operates across different countries, with different partners when necessary, to achieve project objectives on time and on budget. 

Read about how we worked with long-standing partner JES to provide CE marking for compliance of a Japanese Quick Die Changer (QDC) in an Italian automotive part manufacturing plant.

Costs of CE Certification and Testing

IES acts on a consultancy basis so we can recommend solutions and retest as appropriate so you can achieve the compliance and approval needed. Test data can be supplied and used by the client to support a self-declaration for the product without recourse to the additional expense of a Notified body.

IES will cost each situation according to your specific needs and how best we can help you achieve your certification.

LVD Assessment

Our consultant engineers are highly experienced in helping manufacturers achieve product compliance. Whether conducting assessments at your own site or at IES’s facility, we establish whether a product demonstrates any non-conformity and, where it does, can advise on and support a cost effective solution. Find out more about our Low Voltage Directive (LVD) Assessment Services.

EMC Testing

IES can travel to your site and complete EMC testing on equipment in situ, working with your team to implement corrective actions where necessary. Alternatively, for smaller equipment, testing can be conducted at our EMC chamber in Bristol. Find out more about our EMC Directive Services.

Machinery Directive

Our assessments on your machinery enable you to demonstrate conformity to the requirements of the Machinery Directive. This includes risk assessments in accordance with EN ISO 12100, Directives and other relevant Standards. Find out more about our European Machinery Directive Assessments and PUWER and Risk Assessments.
