We looked into this a couple of months ago and found it to be quite complex.
Without prior CE marking, it is the importers responsibility to ensure
compliance, not the manufacturer.
While it seemed to us (in our non-expert opinion) that only the EMI
directive applies, we couldn't clarify whether the FCC certification the
WRAP has already attained is equivalent to the CE standard.
Pascal Dornier assured me that in his opinion the WRAP complies in full with
the CE standard (and I have no reason to doubt him) but we decided that the
investment in certification did not make business sense for the small volume
we initially intend to use. We are now using the Soekris net4xxx range which
are CE marked, I assume by Soekris themselves.
