You have to be kidding, you should see the universal power strip I bought in Chengdu for $1.

For the CE mark in Europe you could do self-certification, I once went that route when I designed an electro-skin-stimulator for a beauty salon

Self-certification means that you document all your design steps and decisions, especially towards customer safety, into a Design File.
You can then just slap on the CE mark without any 3rd party input.

The idea is that when something ontoward happens and you get sued, the Design File would show that you took all reasonable measures, used all reasonable (over) dimensioned parts etc, so that you can't be blamed.

In practice of course there's always the lawyers, but it gives you a way to use the CE mark, that lots of people trust, without too much cost.

Not merely "could", but the whole basis for the EC compliance CE label, afaig.

This China compliance testing appears a way to limit outside imports. Japan did it as well on certain items. Helps create a trade imbalance.

Jacco,
What are you referencing with the tail lights on American cars in Europe. I know that all light assemblies here in the states are marked clearly with an SAE marking that they meet specific standards. I have always found that American light assemblies seem to be much more reliable than the European produced products. Mercedes and BMW seem to have much greater light failure than I have ever seen on American cars. Whether that is because of the connectors or simply poor vibration transfer I don't know, but I often see these cars with non functioning lights, mostly the rear lights.

And I think that I was perhaps a dog before, but I don't remember that I like the taste of grass so I don't think I have been a cow yet!

If one imports a car from the US, the tail lights have to be exchanged to obtain the pass certificate.
An original side-exhaust Dodge Viper is not allowed here either.
