We are proud to announce that the Europe Magic Wand has got the documentation for CE. To our knowledge it is the first 230 V Magic Wand vibrator that has a documented CE and thereby making it legal to sell in Europe.
A lot of products has the CE mark printed on the box or in the plastic of their product, but the only way you can be sure it has a real CE certification is by getting the documentation, or proof that it exist. As a consumer you can always ask your retailer if the product has documentation for the CE. The retailer is responsible for the CE compliance, so he will have to ask the distributor or manufacturer for him to see the documentation, so he can be sure it is available. Any manufacture or distributor is obligated to show the documentation on request.
We do not have any problems with sharing this documentation with you, so you can make a better buying decision.
A proper CE of a personal massager consist of four parts. The LVD (Low Voltage Directive), the EMC (Electromagnetic compatibility), the ErP (Power usage while not in use) and the ROHS (To be sure there is no illegal substances in the product).
All the documentation should be structured in a TCF (Technical Construction File) with an attached DoC (Declaration of Conformity), signed by the responsible importer or manufacturer.
The LVD is to make sure the product is safe to use and “well” designed. The product is going through a couple of hundred different tests and it has to pass all. All products that use 230 V mains power has to pass this testing process at a notified body test agency. It is a common mistake that the so called “CE self certification” is enough when lethal mains power is used.
To make sure the massager will not disturb other electrical equipment that is in use and that the massager is immune against disturbance from other equipment you need it to be EMC compliant. If it is not compatible it can disturb things as your (or your neighbors) television, wifi, radio etc.
When the product is not used, but still plugged in, it will in most cases use some power. This standard ensures that the usage is below the accepted level.
Every single component in the EMW (~100) is tested for all the substances that the European Union does not allow.
SGS is a notified body company. That means that they are allowed to make tests and certificates that show if compliance with different standards are met. SGS is headquartered in Switzerland.
