Products certified CE are able to be sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). The CE marking is also found on products sold outside the EEA that are manufactured in, or designed to be sold in, the EEA. This makes the CE marking recognizable worldwide even to people who are not familiar with the European Economic Area.
The CE marking is the manufacturer's declaration that the product meets the requirements of the applicable EC directives
CSA certification demonstrates that the product has been certified to applicable standards including standards written or administered by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), Underwriters Laboratories (UL), CSA Group (CSA), NSF International (NSF), and other North American and global organizations. Products adhering to CSA standards provide increased assurance of quality and safety.
ATEX product certifications (or EC Type Examination) check the design specification of a product in relation to a series of relevant standards laid out under the 94/9/EC directive.
It involves a detailed process of examination, testing and assessment of equipment intended for use in potentially hazardous areas, with the end result being the issue of an ATEX certificate and report, confirming and demonstrating that the product is safe to use (within certain parameters) within potentially explosive atmospheres.
The IECEx Scheme is the future route to global compliance certification. Its aim is to harmonise standards to allow free movement of goods by establishing a world-wide accepted standard. This will result in a single set of standards, a single certificate and a single mark.

Wilcoxon Sensing Technologies is committed to outstanding corporate citizenship in our markets and timely product delivery to our customers. Consistent with its multilateral commitments to the European Union and other nations, the United States regulates the export of U.S. origin items and technical data. Wilcoxon Sensing Technologies follows an Export Management System (EMS) and is required to obtain certain information from customers to ensure compliance with these regulations.
An EMS is a program structured to assist with exporting products and complying with the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC), and the International Traffic in Arms (ITAR). A vital part of an EMS is the establishment of mechanisms that provide checks and safeguards at key steps in the order processing system, helping to better manage the overall export process. Checks and safeguards help to ensure that the right questions are being asked to preclude exporters from making shipments that are contrary to U.S. export controls and, therefore, inconsistent with the exporter's best interests.
