When Chartered Engineers Certificate is needed:
A Chartered Engineer’s (CE) Certification is required to export old or used Plants and Machinery to India. A agency mandated by Govt. of India to provide CE Certification is required to inspect the machinery prior to shipment and give its opinion in form of a CE Certificate regarding the condition and balance life of machinery, current market value for assessment of duty, contents including spare parts, etc. It is mandatory to produce this CE Certificate during customs clearance for such goods in India.
The process of obtaining a certificate should be relatively trouble free and involves an inspection by a Chartered Engineer and the subsequent issuing of a signed and stamped original certificate on letter headed paper.

Cayley Aerospace Inc is also involved in CE Marking which is done by European Union Registered EUR ING (European Engineer) Bishnujee Singh CEng with Engineering Council-UK ,CPEng with Engineers Australia & Professional Engineer (PE) on NPER Register,APEC Engineer registered for all APEC countries .
CE Marking (CE-Marking), also known unofficially as "CE mark" or "EC Mark", as shown on the top of this page, is a mandatory mark for many (estimatively around 70%) of the products sold on the EFTA plus European Union (EU) market (total 28 countries) and it is often referred as the "Trade Passport to Europe" for non-EU products.
EU legislation, e.g. EU directive concerning Liability for Defective Products, make EU importers liable for the products they import, including the machinery they provide to their employees for work. Many non-EU exporters are finding that no matter how interested a prospective EU importer may be in the product, the importer will NOT risk importing non-conforming products (i.e. the products without CE Marking) which, in case of accident, may generate legal action against them. The liability claims in a law suit can be as high as 70 Million Euros.
CE Marking may be achieved through several modules. One of the most practical ways, which is preferred by many EU importers who are neither specialized in the complicated CE Marking process nor willing to take risk, is that the manufacturer designates an Authorized Representative in the EU member states who will handle the CE Mark approval, CE testing issues and ensure to meet the CE mark requirements, meanwhile the importers and/or distributors focus on the marketing and sales of the products.
