Why not CE ?
Why Not CE ?
When we factor in the cost & consumer safety associated to foreign and U.S. made brand vs. the JUST LED US Inc. Canadian brand, as well as secondary factors such as customs taxation from import, and provincial/federal taxes compared to purchases made in Canada with a Canadian company who markets and sells the units, one can easily see that there is a base price value here in Canada.
The European Commission describes the CE mark as a “passport” that allows manufacturers to circulate industrial products freely within the internal market of the EU. The CE mark certifies that the products have met EU health, safety and environmental requirements that ensure consumer and workplace safety.
The CE directive allows manufacturer to self-declare conformity, and this leads authorities to inform consumer that this is concerning because self declaration may pose danger. Also there is a resistance to change the current system, and European law does not require regular follow-up inspections of the certified product. However, a manufacturer must be prepared to provide proof of compliance if the safety of a product is ever questioned.
This is why CE is NOT recognized in North America for distributors, importers, and manufacturers.
