CE marking
Introduction to Ce marking

The CE mark is a compulsory marking for the free circulation of products in countries belonging to the European Community and the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). The CE mark for construction products is not thus a quality marking, but represents a certificate of conformity to all of the requirements prescribed by the REGULATION (EU) No 305/2011 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 9 March 2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing
Council Directive 89/106/EEC. Every component wihch is inserted into a building envelope must meet the following seven requisites:

- mechanical resistance and stability 

- fire safety

- safety during operation energy saving and heat retention

- noise protection

- hygiene, health and the environment

- sustainable use of natural resources

 

 

Thus in practice, the CE marking certifies that the finished product, excluding its installation, is in possession of certain performance characteristics, declared by the manufacturer and included in the Declaration of performance.

 

The conformity of every individual product is determined by its observance of theHarmonised European Standards issued by the CEN which define characteristics, performance and test methods. On the other hand, for products which do not have a relative CEN standard, it is necessary to refer to the technical approval issued by EOTA(www.eota.be).
