Many industrial and medical devices that are sold into the European Economic Area (EEA) are required to bear the CE mark, or the mark of European Conformity.
Products with the CE mark prove that they meet European health, safety and environmental standards, and therefore can be sold in any EEA country. The European Commission issues Directives for these products and industry areas, then individual countries then have to decide how to transpose the Directives into individual national laws.
In many cases, manufacturers need an independent body to provide third-party testing, inspection and certification throughout the manufacturing process. These bodies, who are approved by a government and notified to the European Commission, are called Notified Bodies, or NoBos.
We've been a Notified Body for as long as there have been Notified Bodies.
Lloyd's Register is a NoBo for several EU Directives, and can provide independent certification for your products.
