CE Marking

The letters 'CE' on a product are the manufacturer's claim that the product meets the requirements of all relevant European Directives.

CE marking on a product:

  • Indicates that the product can be legally sold within the European Union (EU) and the European Free Trade Area (EFTA)
  • Ensures the product can move freely throughout the European Single Market
  • Indicates to customers that the product meets designated minimum safety standards and therefore a minimum level of quality

CE marking is mandated by New Approach Directives. Many products are covered by these directives and to be placed on the market in the EU, some must bear CE marking - it is a legal requirement.

From the end of May 2002 the manufacture of fire extinguishers became subject to the Pressure Equipment Directive of the EU. Compliance with this Directive is mandatory and is aimed at ensuring the safety of such products across the EU. Once satisfactorily tested, products can bear the CE Mark. GLORIA was the first manufacturer in Europe to gain CE markings for its complete range of fire extinguishers.
