Role of CE Marking in the Placing on the Market of Power Capacitors

Within the European Single Market, the placing of products on the market is governed in many areas by what are termed "New Approach" directives or regulations. These legislative instruments require manufacturers to apply the CE mark to their products when they fall within the scope of such a legislative instrument. At the same time and in particular in conjunction with EU Regulation 765/2008/EC, the same instruments prohibit the affixing of the CE mark to products for which no relevant directive exists.

Since, depending not least upon their design and purpose, power capacitors may ultimately either be employed as components within products or constitute stand-alone "equipment" which in turn falls within the scope of a legal instrument making provision for mandatory CE marking, uncertainty often exists regarding whether such capacitors are themselves subject to mandatory CE marking.
