The CE label

The CE label originates from a resolution of the EC Council on May 7, 1986 (the new version concerning technical harmonization and standardization surrounding the elimination of technical trading hindrances within the EC). The implementation is carried out by the harmonization directives (EC guidelines). Although the application of the harmonized European norms is voluntary, conformity with the basic legal requirements for the protection of the health and safety of the consumer and environment can be assumed when manufacturing is conducted according to these standards.

The attachment of the CE label by the manufacturer, therefore, is proof that the protective requirements of the applicable EC guidelines
were observed and that the required conformity valuation process was carried out. The fulfilment of these protective requirements is a legal
requirement in order to sell a product in the EU.

The CE label is not meant for the purchaser or consumer; it is an administrative symbol and informs the supervisory authorities of the proof of conformity. The following EC guidelines are relevant today
for CONTA-CLIP products:

Electromagnetic Compatibility (2004/108/EC)

for devices which can cause electromagnetic interference or are affected by interference.

Low Voltage Directive (2014/35/EU)
for use with electrical equipment with a rated voltage between 50 and 1000 V (for AC current) and between 75 and 1500 V (for DC current).

Machine Safety (2006/42/EC)
The entire construction and production at CONTA-CLIP has long been subject to these relevant standards and directives. Standard-compliant
testing of our products is carried out in direct cooperation with the responsible, accredited laboratory of the TÜV Rheinland (Technical Inspection Agency of Rhineland – the inspection agency for device safety). Modern, computeraided measurement and examination facilities help to ensure the fast, affordable and efficient processing of examinations and certifications.

Information about the CE label
CE labelling of the products or their packaging units is carried out according to the basic requirements found in all EC guidelines which
apply to the products within the transitional periods established in the individual guidelines.

Cable connectors

The CE labelling is carried out by the manufacturer within the scope of a manufacturer’s declaration, in compliance with EC guidelines. This
confirms conformity with the directive and is targeted for the authorities.

Cable connectors comply with the basic safety regulations given in the low voltage directive. The CE label is mandatory. It must be attached
to the packaging because it confirms conformity with directives and ensures the free trade of goods in Europe.

In order to ensure that our products remain at the cutting edge of technology, we have worked closely and successfully with experts at TÜV Rheinland Product Safety GmbH and the KEMA inspection agency.

This excellent cooperation helps us to be completely sure of the electrical safety of our products. Experts at an impartial inspection agency help us to satisfy all of the latest regulations and to meet our customers' current challenges.

Our innovative terminal blocks, for example, have been examined and certified to the highest possible extent by the TÜV Rheinland Product
Safety GmbH and the KEMA Testing Authority for their conformity to international (IEC) and European norms (EN). These tests are documented in the existing inspection reports.
