The CE marking scheme has been developed to support a single European trade market with harmonized standards. This economic area, where goods, capital, services and labor can move freely, requires a common understanding. Based on the so-called (New Approach Directives),
CE marking became the mandatory European method by which conformity of certain product groups with the essential requirements of these directives is identified. Glass products are subject to the Construction Product Directives 89/106/EEC.
CE Marking is the symbol as shown on the Left of this page. The letters "CE" are the abbreviation of French phrase "Conformité Européene" which literally means "European Conformity". The term initially used was "EC Mark" and it was officially replaced by "CE Marking" in the Directive 93/68/EEC in 1993. "CE Marking" is now used in all EU official documents.
"CE Mark" is also in use, but it is NOT the official term. For instance, in the Directive 2007/47/ec, of 5 September 2007, amending the directives 90/385/eec, 93/42/eec & 98/8/ec, the term CE Markingappears 9 times whereas CE Mark appears nowhere in the entire 35-page document.
