Glossary Term: Compliance mark

The compliance mark is a physical mark placed on the product or packaging stating that a product has met the regulatory standards and specific requirements. Most notably, the CE mark is placed on products that meet the specification for products sold in the European Economic Area. Similar to the CE, in the United States the Federal Communications Commission grants the FCC mark to electronic devices that meet its regulatory standards and is often seen worldwide. These marks indicate that they may be sold in the respective economic areas regardless of the country of origin.
