Default PIA DC-10 problem in Europe

What is being done to solve the problem with the AeroClassics PIA DC-10 not getting thru to the stores and customers?

Excuse my ignorance. A CE logo, is that something critical in customs paperwork?

It’s a logo on the box that says CE , that certifies it’s safe for European consumers use.

Far from being ridiculous... It is actually very important, the CE logo is there to proove that the product complies with all safety regulations. It is how a consumer can be sure there is no dangerous chemical, lead paint etc...
A product with no CE logo is considered not complying with the safety regulations.
So it's a very big mistake of the manufacturer if the product passed the tests but they omitted it. No luck for us poor consummers.

If safety regs are deemed to be ridiculous then we're all stuffed.
