CETech

CETech is a cloud based software solution for maintaining the essential components of a technical file, providing manufacturers and importers of consumer products with a means of demonstrating compliance with CE-marking legislation within the European Union. CETech covers electrical, toys and machinery products.

CETech is a logical and analytical tool. Through its application the organisation will benefit from a thorough understanding of the procedures involved in achieving and maintaining compliance with CE-marking legislation. Intuitive interfaces ensure all essential document details are captured and validated, for example when uploading a Declaration of Conformity or Test Report.

Graphical illustration of technical file content and gaps. The dashboard provides the organisation with a customisable overview of all products entered into the database allowing the user to drill down to individual products.

Many products fail due to unscheduled critical component changes. Manufacturers may be unaware of the implications of changing a critical component from a quality and safety perspective. This is often the cause of product recall as the product was considered hazardous and poses a serious risk of injury. CETech provides the means of demonstrating due diligence by scheduling regular correspondence with the Manufacturer or Agent providing details of changes to critical components.
