star this property answer text <p>CE marking is a declaration that a product compiled with relevant EU legislation when it was initially placed on the EU market. A product does not generally have to be relabelled if it has already been placed on the market and is then later sold as second hand. The retailer does, however, have to ensure those goods are safe.</p><p> </p><p>Charity retailers can therefore already continue to sell second-hand goods without needing to relabel them, as long as they are safe. This is not time-limited and will remain the case even in a scenario where the CE marking is no longer accepted for new goods being placed on the UK market.</p> more like this
