Article 16 : CE marking

1. The CE conformity marking shall consist of the initials "CE" as shown in Annex III.

2. The CE marking shall be affixed to the machinery visibly, legibly and indelibly in accordance with Annex III.

3. The affixing on machinery of markings, signs and inscriptions which are likely to mislead third parties as to the meaning or form of the CE marking, or both, shall be prohibited.

The marking is affixed to the machinery and safety components. Only the partly completed machinery do not have.

Original Comment:

Le marquage est apposé sur les machines et les composants de sécurité. Seules les quasi-machines ne le possèdent pas.
