CE Marking Workshop

Learn the Step-by-Step Process for Complying with Europe's CE Mark

Are you a manufacturer doing business internationally? Among the critical compliance standards of the U.S. there may be others to identify. The CE mark is a growing standard that may be costly for U.S. manufacturers, but will allow your organization to adhere to EU product safety regulations.

On August 27th, the Illinois SBDC International Trade Center at the Industrial Council of Nearwest Chicago (ICNC) will partner with the Center for International Regulatory Assistance (CITRA) at Duquesne University to present the day-long workshop at ICNC. Facilitated by CITRA experts and the Illinois SBDC International Trade Center at ICNC, the workshop will cover:

  • What the CE mark is and its role in selling your products in Europe
  • Why and how to perform a CE product risk assessment
  • How to identify EU standards that apply to your products
  • Documentation your company needs to comply with CE
  • Creating a product technical file
  • Testing requirements and strategies for reducing testing costs
  • When, why and how to select a notified body or authorized representative
  • How ISO 9000 applies to CE
  • New developments in the CE system including ROHS

Participants will have the opportunity to formulate a step-by-step strategy for CE marking their products.

Course Fee: $35 for Illinois small business exporters (a company must be based in Illinois, have less than 500 employees and justify course sponsorship at registration; training grant funds thanks to the Illinois Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity); $600 for other participants
