The "CE" marking is represented in the "European Community". This marking indicates that the product complies with the European technical standard known as the Harmonized European Standard (hEN).

Harmonized European standards (hENs) are standards approved by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) where all national standardization bodies are represented, according to a mandate from the European Commission. These standards are the result of open and transparent discussions and have been established on the basis of consensus among the various interested parties.


The CE marking is not:

An appellation of origin

  A quality brand in the traditional sense of the word

  Linked to aspects not covered by the essential requirements, such as colour, appearance, etc.
  An authorization to use the product in all cases and in all countries.

Standards have been established to eliminate technical barriers to the marketing of building products. A single standard will exist for the main types of products or product lines. These standards supersede all national standards.

A number of hEN's concerning glass for construction have been applicable since 1 September 2005 and are mandatory since 1 September 2006. The corresponding harmonised European standards are indicated in brackets.
