The Association of Loading and Elevating Equipment Manufacturers


Do all new products have to be CE marked?

No. This only applies to those products that come under one of the relevant product supply Directives that require CE marking, for example:

  • Machinery
  • Lifts
  • Pressure equipment
  • Low-voltage electrical equipment
  • Equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres

Products that do not fall under these Directives – such as manually-powered machinery (except those used for lifting), tools and ladders – must not be CE marked.
