We can provide you with total support
for complying with the CE marking for
products sold in the EU market.

In order to distribute or use Japanese products in the EU market, the products must comply with the CE marking.

Before products are placed on the market, the CE marking requires that a conformity assessment is carried out according to the directives of the European Commission.
Products that satisfy the directives, as well as the packaging, owner's manual, and other related materials, must display the CE marking.

Specifically, the manufacturer must select the directives and standards that apply to the product, create and translate the related conformity assessments, technical documents, owner's manuals, and service manuals, and build a system for monitoring the products after they are placed on the market.

CE-PASS is a complete service, encompassing all of these complicated processes and creation work, to help you ensure a smooth distribution of your products.
