Hi Bro,

Here are some information extracted on "CE" :
The CE mark is a mandatory European marking for certain product groups to indicate conformity with the essential health and safety requirements set out in European Directives. The letters 'CE' are an abbreviation of Conformité Européenne, French for European conformity. The CE mark must be affixed to a product if it falls under the scope of the approx. 20 so called 'New Approach' Directives. Without the CE marking, and thus without complying with the provisions of the Directives, the product may not be placed in the market or put into service in the fifteen member states of the European Union and Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Thus, CE marking can be regarded as the products trade passport for Europe.

Mainland, China do not have "CE", they have "China Compulsory Certification", abbreviated as "CCC", to replace the Compulsory Supervision System for Product Safety Certification and the Safety License System for Import Commodities.

Hope this will be useful to all.
