By affixing the CE Marking, the manufacturer, or its representative, or the importer assures that the item meets all the essential requirements of all applicable EU directives. As a Worldwide Authorized Independent Agency, AQC offers conformity assistance with Construction Products, Containers, Cranes, Electrical Products and Components, Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Lifts, Marine Equipment, Materials, Mechanical Products, Process Machines, Pressure equipment, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Telecom, Toys and Wood. Where products are subject to several directives, which all provide for the affixing of the CE marking, the marking indicates that the products are presumed to conform to the provisions of all these directives.

Our Approach of CE Marking
One of the best ways to achieve success of a new product is to give it the best possible start, with care and attention at every stage. At AQC, we can assist with the entire life cycle of a product from design and development, supply and production, distribution and delivery, to retail distribution and even final dismantling or destruction.
Complying with the CE Marking is a critical issue when looking to launch your product on the global marketplace. Understanding the myriad of the regulation that affect your product in your target market is a key to success. Our assessment process begins with the understanding where product(s) is to be marketed, who will use the product, what are your quality expectations?
The responses help us to identify the regulatory barriers, the directives, the standards, your conformity assessment route option, etc...And to develop a rationalised compliance plan for your product range with your target markets within, as well as outside, the EU
