Please note:

a) After the United Kingdom has left the European Union it requires products to be affixed with the UKCA marking instead of the CE marking. The CE marking will be accepted during a transition period that ends on 1-1-2022.

b) Switzerland is not a member of the European Union, but for some products it accepts the CE marking as a presumption of conformity with Swiss national technical regulations.

c) Turkey is neither member of the EU, nor is considered a part of the EEA. However, Turkey has fully implemented many of the European CE marking directives. This means that for many products they also require CE marking.
