The European Economic Area (EEA) consists of 31 member states of the EU and the four European Free Trade Association countries, Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland. There are many products that carry the ‘CE’ mark and are the manufacturers verification that these products meet EU safety, health and environmental requirements. In addition Turkey has adopted CE making with its affiliation to the EEA.

Products that require CE marking are covered by the scope of one or more of the New Approach Directives – even if a product is manufactured outside the EEA and is within the scope it must conform to and display CE marking or it is illegal to be sold into the EEA.
