Certification of Construction Products
Market access for construction products is regulated in the European Union by the Construction Products Regulation (CPR/Bauproduktenverordnung (BauPVO)). Beyond that, special national regulations apply, in Germany, for example, the Building Regulations of the federal state (Landesbauordnung LBO).
According to the BauPVO, building products require a CE conformity declaration based on a performance declaration; according to the LBO, special products may require an additional approval by the building authorities or a test certificate issued by the building authorities.
EPH is accredited and notified on a European level as an “independent third party certification body” acc. to EN 17065 (Reg. No. 0766) for products and Factory Production Control (FPC) and, in addition to that, recognised by the DIBt as a body according to the LBO (Reg. No. SAC 03) for the German market.
However, regulations and standards do not fully cover the demand of the market for certified products.
Hence, quality and rating associations, but also the EPH itself have installed their own “certification programmes” according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17067 in order to meet the demand for an independent and transparent evaluation of product characteristics.
Make use of our specialists’ competence in your decisions.
You will find your contact partners via either the product range maintained by our certification body or the product standards or services of our accredited test laboratory which the certification body will fall back to when selecting and testing performance parameters.
