In today's Post i will discuss about Five Markings which is having  a good meaning behind its marking.

CE:
CE
CE is the abbreviation of French i.e Conformite' Europe'enne, which means European conformity.
It has become legal since 1993.It is mandatory conformity marking for products placed on the markets in the European economic area.
With CE marking a product  manufacturer declares that the product conforms  with the essential requirements of the applicable EC directives.

VEGETARIAN MARK :

Packaged food products sold in India are required to be labelled with this mandatory mark in order to distinguish between veg and non-veg.
This symbol is in  effect following Food safety and standards act of 2006.
So Green symbol indicates food is vegetarian



Non Vegetarian mark:
Non Veg symbol
This symbol is also used for the products that are sold in India in order to distinguish between veg and non veg.
Its is also in effect following Food safety and standards act of 2006.
So Brown symbol indicates food is NON VEG.

BIS hallmark is a hallmarking system for Gold as well as Silver Jewellery sold in India certifying Purity of metal.
BIS hallmark of gold Jewellery consist of several components:

It is a universal recycling symbol is an international recognized symbol used to designate recyclable materials.
In these symbols Resin codes are written at the center of this symbol.These codes or numbers represents with  which plastic we can a particular product and what are its uses.
