Why can a ladder not be CE marked?

Wibe Ladders - Global

Only product groups covered by a specific European legislation can be CE marked. Ladders do not belong to such a product group. The reason why some of our leaning ladders have a CE mark on the label is because they also can be used as a permanently fixed roof ladder.

As a permanently fixed roof ladder, the ladder is considered as building material and covered by a legislation that allows the CE-mark. If you find stepladders, trestles or similar products with a CE mark, they are incorrectly labeled, which is a criminal offense. Learn more about which products that can be CE marked on the European Commission’s webpage.
