'[OT] CE marks for custom designs'

I was under the impression the CE marks were more of a self certification, but doing a little research it would appear that I was wrong...CE is the NRTL equivilent to the EU marketplace.  Isnt..wasn't there a self certification that wasn't a full NRTL cert?
 
 OK, so...reason I ask is a client called and was asking about this, and do they really need it for the product they build.  Essentially they build some equipment that has a 3phase motor on it, already UL listed, and then build a control panel, semi custom for each user that has a PLC, motor starter, transformer and user interface.  So all the pieces going into it are agency approved but the assembly is not, since each can be different depending on the customer requirements.  So, the wiring is all done per NRTL specs but its not certified as it would have to be done each time since each are slightly different.
 
 So, for a custom design, one-off so to speak, would it really need the CE mark to import into the EU?

The CE mark encompasses many different types of certification, and not
all of them are self certifying, though most of them are.

I don't know what it is in your case, though.  I expect there are
rules that allow for customization without having to re-certify
through a certifying authority, but again, I have no advice for your
particular situation.

I found that after reading and re-reading through the CE documents I
was able to glean enough information to determine whether I was 'safe'
in self certifying, or whether I needed to engage a lawyer or CE
expert to determine compliance requirements.  As I was only dealing
with EMC/EMI and very simple safety requirements, I was able to self
certify (USB memory device).

Start wading through the docs.  They aren't terribly difficult - just dry.
