CE marking is required in all the countries of the European Economic Area (EEA), comprising the 28 member states of the EU, plus three EFTA countries. Certain other countries have adopted CE Marking to meet their own safety and environmental needs. These countries include Turkey, Republic of Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro.

The following is a list of countries where CE marking is required:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Republic of Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom.

Agreements on Mutual Recognition of Conformity Assessment exist between the EU and certain external countries including Canada, USA, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. However, these are very often limited in effect


The UK is scheduled to leave the European Union in Mach 2019. However, the CE mark is likely to continue to be in use there for the forseeable future. The UK government plans to adopt many EU laws as its own. These could be amended later but, even then, UK manufactures will need to meet CE marking requirments for products to be exported to the EU.
