The first thing to understand is that there is no such thing as a perfectly certified CE product. The amount of time you invest in it is up to you, but the responsibility for making sure you have invested enough is also up to you. It is a self-certification process. It will be necessary to make sure the administration is strictly controlled. It must be issue controlled and properly backed up. An enormous amount of money can also be saved by designing for EMC properly and going to the EMC test house properly prepared. (Company white paper, July 2013)
