Mandatory Requirement for CE Marking

In very broad terms, the Pressure Equipment Regulations 1999 (ďthe PERĒ) introduced compulsory CE marking of new extinguishers. The reader is referred to the PER document for further details.

What is CE Marking?

In connection with the PER, the CE Mark signifies only that the unit in question meets very basic safety requirements in connection with its pressurisation.

The Ongoing Need for Quality Marks

The reader should be absolutely clear that the CE Mark is NOT a quality mark, merely a mark showing the unit meets certain legislated criteria in a very narrow area - it has little bearing on the unitís ability to perform its function.

As always, one should always check for the presence of the usual recognised quality marks, in this case the BAFE mark and the BSI Kitemark.
