Power adapter CE authentication requirements

For many engineers working on switching power adapter product development, it is the most critical part of the whole R & D process to send new products to relevant departments and carry out strict CE certification, which is also directly related to whether the product can meet the export standards. So, what is this CE authentication? What are the requirements for CE authentication for switching power adapters? Let's take a look together.
In fact, this so-called CE certification is a European country's product certification for short. If the new products of the switching power adapter want to export to European countries, they must have the "CE" logo. The "CE" logo is also a kind of pass to enter European countries. This sign indicates that the product meets one or several related European directives. This is enforced by law. During the certification audit process, the power adapter products will be certified for production quality, product quality, unit validation and EC type test. After acceptance, the appropriate "CE" logo will be issued. For the products that have passed the certification, the "CE" logo issued by the European Union must be printed on the nameplate and packaging box, and the height is not less than 5mm, and it needs scaling.
Of course, after the CE authentication has been made by the power adapter, there is still a job that a distributor needs to do, that is, sign the compliance statement. When the adapter products are exported to Europe, the manufacturer must sign in a compliance statement indicating that its products have met the requirements of the European Union. This statement must be shipped to Europe, otherwise the European customs will not allow the goods to enter. Once the product is found in Europe that does not meet the conditions of CE, it will be severely punished.
Finally, we need to remind you that the CE authentication of the switching power adapter is not what any institution can do. We must make sure that its qualification is accreditation if it is commissioned. If it is an illegal testing institution, the consequences will be very serious. Because if the product is not tested and labeled with CE, it will be considered to manufacture counterfeit products. All European Union countries will take appropriate measures to impose severe penalties on counterfeit CE logo products and the same manufacturer's other products in Europe. Therefore, it would be very dangerous if the product was tested by some illegal or crude authentication institutions.
