Position Paper on the “Made In” concept in the proposal for a Regulation on Consumer Product Safety
There is today no obligation at EU level regarding the marking of non-food products imported in the EU (apart from the origin indication on custom declaration information). The CE marking only signals that all essential requirements have been fulfilled when the product was manufactured. The CE marking is not a mark of origin, as it does not indicate that the product was manufactured in the European Union. Consequently, a product affixed with the CE marking may have been produced anywhere in the world.
