Importing Bluetooth Printer from China, CE Marking


#1

I have found the perfect product for my business, cheap, seemingly well-made and good printer quality.

I would like to sell these in the UK. For that, I understand it needs to comply with various direectives. These are the ones I think apply:
LVD DIRECTIVE 2014/35/EU
RE DIRECTIVE 2014/53/EU
RoHS DIRECTIVE 2011/65/EU
EMC DIRECTIVE 2014/30/EU

Now, when I asked the manufacturer for certificates he produced certificates for the above directives. The only slight issue is that the certificates had a different model name on them, so even if they were genuine, completely useless.

I assume I will need to test this product in Europe? Anyone have any idea as to how long this will take and how much it will cost? Is there a list of accredited testing labs in the UK?

thanks,
David

Why don’t you require the manufacturer to provide these before you buy these things.
Just buying a bunch, then pay for the testing (not that cheap) only to get get thumbs down since they won’t pass testing (leaving you a huge pile of electronic waste) - that all sounds not so clever IMHO.
