Its only a level playing field for those playing by the rules. In CE testing the vast majority of PC's don't pass, various individual components have CE marks but entire systems aren't tested together. However by the time a system is investigated and a notice of non compliance is issued, the PC world is two generations down the line and the failed equipment isn't being sold any more anyway. However manufacturers like Castle who build a system and sell it for 5 years or more, have to make sure it passes, incurring great expense, or they risk being put out of business.
