About the ENEC Mark

 

ENEC, the high quality European Mark for electrical products is now 25 years old!  It demonstrates compliance with European standards (ENs), mainly related to safety.

The ENEC mark is complementary to the mandatory CE marking on the electrical products placed on the European market. Being granted by a 3rd party, independent from the manufacturer or importer, the ENEC mark always signifies that the product is safe in accordance with the appropriate European directive  (for example: LVD, MD).

European Certification Bodies in the electrical sector have opened the ENEC European Safety Mark to all electrical product sectors. Tests are carried out in approved independent test laboratories (ENEC TLs) located worldwide or, under certain conditions, in approved manufacturers’ laboratories.

 

About the CE marking: It is important to know that the CE marking does not indicate that products have been approved as safe by the European Union or by another authority. It represents a declaration from the manufacturer or importer that the product has been assessed and complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European Directives. (For more information, see the EC website, CE marking for consumers, at the following address http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/policies/single-market-goods/cemarking/facts/facts-ce/index_en.htm)
 

About the Low Voltage Directive: If you have an electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits, you have certainly heard of the LVD (Low Voltage Directive, 2006/95/EC). If you are looking for guidelines on the application of the LVD, the European Commission has published a very useful document.
