The CE marking on machinery indicates conformity with all applicable European directives (or with their transposition into national law) that require such marking.

Nevertheless conformity with the Machinery Directive is not necessarily sufficient and for many machines other directives wil also have to be followed. So particularly when one first becomes acquainted with this issue the situation can come over as reasonably complex.
