CE” originated as an abbreviation of Conformité Européenne, meaning European Conformity. CE marking is a mandatory legal conformity requirement for all products sold within the European Union that fall within the scope of a directive which requires a CE marking. By affixing a CE marking to a product and signing the Declaration of Conformity, a product supplier is declaring to the EU authorities that the minimum requirements of all applicable directives have been met. Depending on the directive, involvement of a European Union ‘Notified Body’ may be mandatory for certain types of products
“ISO 9001 Certified” means an organization has met the requirements in ISO9001. It defines an ISO 9000 Quality Management System (QMS). ISO 9001:2008 is focused on meeting customer expectations and delivering customer satisfaction so you must pay attention to the customer.
