EU Market Access for Electrical Equipment
Do you have a product ready for deployment in the European market? Every company or entity that trades electrical equipment in the European market is required to obtain a CE-mark. CE-Mark is proof that your equipment conforms with all legal requirements of the European market. As the responsible party, you must comply with the set of requirements and processes known as The Low Voltage Directive 2004/35/EU. The directive ensures that the equipment is safe to the user and will help you obtain the CE-Mark, after which you can introduce your medical equipment to the European market.
Depending on the specifics of your product, it might be possible that your electrical equipment has to comply with more directives. Products that contain electronics have to fulfill substance and waste directives and have other disposal measures. Additionally, you must comply with Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU if your electrical equipment contains Bluetooth or radio functions. We can help classify your product for you. You might also have to comply with the following directives:
- Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive
- Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
- Electromagnetic Compatibility

We will handle everything after you provide specific information about your product and guarantee that your electrical equipment complies with the requirements.
What is Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
Electromagnetic compatibility, known as “EMC”, is the ability of Electrical and Electronic (E&E) equipment to operate within its electromagnetic (EM) environment and with other equipment. All E&E devices have the potential to emit electromagnetic field radio frequency (RF) interference. Such interference can affect the normal operation of devices and others within their environment and is therefore subject to measurement and control.
The purpose of EMC is two-fold:
- To ensure that electronic devices operate as intended in their electromagnetic environment without causing Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) with each other (or themselves)
- To ensure that radio communications, particularly for emergency services, are protected
