A CE Marking is a European marking of conformity that indicates that a product complies with the essential requirements of the applicable European laws and/or directives with respect to safety, health, environment and consumer protection.
For example, there are rules for medical devices, machines with moving parts, electronic devices, etc. A product in one of the controlled product categories cannot legally be sold in the EU unless it has passed the tests to receive the CE marking.
In general, environment and safety regulations in Europe are historically more strict compared to regulations applicable in other regions of the world. As European Union is progressively taking more important role in world economics, many standards created in Europe are becoming a benchmark for other countries to follow. In this process, "CE" become over last 10-12 years a base for many national and regional safety standards, and a preferential standard, which is universally recognized in today global economic market.
OzoneLab™ products have been designed with "CE" specifications in our mind ever since our company was established in 1993. However, due to substantial expense associated with "CE" testing done by an independent laboratory, we did not get the first group of OzoneLab™ instruments CE" tested until February 2003. The "CE" testing project was completed in August 2003 by tests of all remaining OzoneLab™ ozone and UV instruments.
We wish to share with you the fact, that all our instruments passed all tests in the first round of testing. In other words, all our ozone & UV instruments were fully compliant with existing CE regulations and directives without the need for any additional last minute modifications or changes of our serial production instruments. This fact supports our claim, that we always designed and produced our instruments with a high degree of responsibility towards the safety of the client.
We also wish to point out that one of very important CE testing procedures our OzoneLab™ ozone and UV instruments were subjected to was the examination of electro magnetic interference/emissions (EMI/EME) created by the instrument, and the susceptibility of the instrument to the same. This crucial aspect is virtually omitted by standard UL and CSA certification tests in North America, yet they have vital importance on two different levels:
We are glad to specifically report that all OzoneLab™ ozone & UV instruments passed EMI/EME tests, proving that our equipment is safe not only to human personal operating it, but also to sensitive systems located in close proximity to our ozone & UV hardware.
