Raspberry Pi passes CE Quality Assurance Testing

On April 9th , the Raspberry Pi passed Europe's Conformite Europeene (CE) quality mark testing, which means that the Raspberry Pi can now be sold to European customers. The shipment of the Raspberry Pi came to a halt earlier this month due to the fact that the device was lacking a CE mark to be able to ship to it's European customers. "We just received confirmation that the Raspberry Pi has passed EMC testing without requiring any hardware modifications," said Raspberry Pi foundation spokesperson Liz Upton wrote on the official blog. "There is still a mountain of paperwork for us to sign, and that then has to be looked over by RS Components and element14/Premier Farnell; but that’s a piece of cake compared to what we’ve been doing all week," she added.

The foundation also needs to do more paperwork to get Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Australian CTick, and the Canadian Standards Agency (CSA) approval for International sales.
