CE Marking: What is it and what is the standard for our panels and doors?

The CE marking can be seen in most products that we can buy throughout the EU, so we want to tell you what it is and what regulations affect the refrigeration panels and doors we manufacture.

The CE marking can be seen in most products that we can buy throughout the EU, so we want to tell you what it is and what regulations affect the refrigeration panels and doors we manufacture.

The CE marking is nothing more than a process whereby the manufacturer, distributor / importer of a product informs consumers and competent European authorities that the product marketed in the European territory complies with the mandatory legislation with respect to the essential requirements that it must comply.

In order for readers to understand the previous paragraph, the EU through Directives, transmits or legislates, rather (especially manufacturers), a series of features and functions that a product must fulfill in order to be sold in European territory.

The CE marking badge that must be worn by all those products that comply with European regulations has a specific design and specific measures that we show below:

This is the official EU logo for the CE marking of products. You must scrupulously follow sssss with these measures

  • The proportions of the logo must be preserved, the minimum vertical dimension being 5mm
  • It must be placed in a visible place. If this is not possible, you should look at the packaging and the documents that accompany the product, if applicable and the relevant Directive allows it.
  • The marking must be followed by the identification number (s) of the Notified Bodies involved in your case.
  • This logo is the only indication that the product complies with the relevant European Directives.
  • It is placed at the end of the product production phase.
  • It will be set by the manufacturer, or where appropriate, by the authorized legal representative within the EU. If the Directive permits, it may be the final distributor who performs the CE labeling function.
  • It is strictly forbidden to place signs or logos that may be confused with the CE marking.

Manufacturer Responsibility

Manufacturers are responsible for carrying out the certification procedures for their products.These must:

  1. Ensure that the product / products they manufacture meet the essential requirements of the Directives that apply to them.
  2. Sign the EC Declaration of Conformity.
  3. Prepare the documentation and product data sheet.
  4. Fix the CE marking.

If the manufacturer is not present in the EU, it may be the distributors, as indicated in the Application Directive, who are responsible for carrying out the certification procedures.

What happens if the product is NOT CONFORM?

If a Member State is certain that a product may entail a risk to the safety and health of people, and even have some harmful effect on the Environment, it will be the responsibility of the manufacturer to adapt said product to stop entailing the risks detected , in order to restore the EC conformity of the product and end the infringement detected by that Member State.

In the event that this disagreement is maintained, the relevant Member State has the duty and the power to put all the means at its disposal to withdraw said product from commercialization.

Is it possible to present products without CE marking?

There are 4 situations that allow manufacturers to have products without CE marking:

  1. Fairs, exhibitions and demonstrations, always clearly indicating that it does not comply “for the moment” with the CE certification.
  2. Products manufactured expressly for export to countries outside the EU.
  3. Certain products covered by Directives that exempt the CE marking as the safety components in the Machinery Directive.
  4. Repair or Modification of products manufactured previously in the EU.

What regulations concern products manufactured by DIPPANEL?

The product standard where the necessary conditions for obtaining the CE marking of self-supporting insulating double-sided insulating sandwich panels is reflected is UNE-EN 14509. This standard was revised in 2014, so if you want to take a look at the standard which is currently in force you should look for it as UNE-EN 14509: 2014

The previous norm dated from 2007 and in the present one numerous changes have been introduced, especially in the area of ​​the reaction to fire of the different types of panels. In this link you have very well explained the changes.

Todos los paneles que vende Dippanel cumplen con la más exigente normativa europea.

With respect to the product standard where the necessary conditions for obtaining the CE marking of the refrigeration doors are reflected, it is the UNE-EN 13241: 2004 + A2: 2017.

This standard is still very recent, in fact it has entered into force in November 2017. It comes to replace the previous standard UNE-EN 13241: 2004 + A1: 2011. The most notable novelty of the new standard is found in the scope of the “Title, Object and Field of Application” in which, for example, the Pedestrian Gates cease to be subject to this norm, since they already have their own.

Our new refrigeration doors have been certified under the latest European regulations and already have CE Marking

Another of the most substantial changes involves those doors installed under the previous regulations. If the new regulations concern important changes with respect to the previous one, those doors that met the previous regulations must be modified to comply with the current one.

In this link we leave you with a very interesting article where we are told in detail the development of the changes of the current standard.

In Dippanel the customer can have absolute certainty and confidence that all our products comply with European regulations, and therefore, all our products have CE Marking. Feel free to ask for a budget here, for your project
