Some of the statutory certification
marks issued by LNE

French regulations, European Directives and international regulations stipulate that certain products must meet specific requirements before they are placed on the market or circulated, and that their compliance with these requirements must be verified by a body expressly designated for this purpose by the national authorities concerned or the European Commission.
Verification by the body concerned usually results in the manufacturer being issued with certificates for the products, entitling the company to apply the corresponding marking (eg. CE or UN) to them. This is the statutory certification process.
