Service Providers

Consulting firms and other service providers can manage the CE marking process in parts or full. Here are some examples of the parts they can manage:

Most consulting companies are specialized to a certain extent. Some are specialized in medical devices, while others exclusively create user instructions.

CE Marking Software Tools

Contracting the entire process to a consulting firm can be expensive. Software tools, such as those provided by ProductIP, help automate part of the CE marking process. Using software tools can save you significant amounts of money – but requires that you self-manage the process to some extent.

How much does CE marking consultants cost?

The cost depends entirely on the complexity of your products, and to which extent you need help in managing the process. If you intend to outsource the entire process then you should expect to pay at least a few thousand dollars or euros. Here are some examples:

  • Research directives and standards: USD 1500 – 4000
  • Create label files: USD 200 – 500
  • Create Declaration of Conformity (DoC): USD 200 to 500
  • Create technical file: USD 1000 – 3000
  • Create user instructions: USD 500 – 2000

How much does CE marking software cost?

Software tools are either priced on a monthly, user, or usage basis. For example, you can buy individual requirements lists on ProductIP for around 40 USD, while other software tools charge a monthly or yearly fee for unlimited usage.
