You need to look to the essential requirements of each directive that
applies to the product. The requirements differ drastically between
directives. For example, the Machinery Directive requires comprehensive
instructions that include how the machine is *not* to be used, and technical
data, like noise and vibration figures; much less documentation is required
for toys or domestic electrical appliances.

For information from the UK Government, go to and
search for "CE Marking".
