European Union Certified
European Union Certified products obtain the CE Mark (an acronym for the French "Conformite Europeene") which certifies that a product has met the health, safety and environmental requirements of the European Union, thereby ensuring consumer and workplace safety. Europe has generally been ahead of the United States in preventing the use of dangerous chemicals such as phthalates, lead, cadmium and and bisphenol A.
All manufacturers in the EU and abroad must meet CE mark requirements where applicable in order to market their products in Europe. Once a product has earned the Conformite Europeene Mark, it may be marketed throughout the EU without having to undergo further modifications in each member state. That's why the CE Mark has been called the "trade passport" for Europe.
