CE conformity assessment

Product certification – general information

Many products require CE marking before they can be distributed for sale in the EU. The CE marking indicates that the product has been evaluated by the manufacturer and found to meet EU safety, health and environmental requirements. It is required for products manufactured anywhere in the world that are then sold in the EU.

COCH operates as Notified Body No. 1462 under the following directives:

2014/68/EU - Pressure equipment (PED)

Our company offers a reliable evaluation of equipment for obtaining the label CE (Conformité Européenne), which is a key criterion for determining whether a product meets the legal requirements of the European Union. CE conformity assessment allows the free circulation of a given device within the European Economic Area, which includes 28 European Union member states and countries of the European Free Trade Association. Refrigeration equipment, air conditioning equipment, heat pumps, as well as refrigerated transport can undergo a professional conformity assessment procedure.
