SKG-IKOB Building Envelope Newsletter

As an associate of SKG-IKOB we present to you our “Building envelope Newsletter”. In this way we keep you regularly informed of the latest developments in relation to certification, testing and inspections.



Recently we informed you in our newsletter that the coexistence period of EN 16034 would probably commence later than 1 September 2016. A new commencing date has been published on June 10th in the OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union). The coexistence period of EN 16034 will commence two months later on 1 November 2016 and will last until 1 November 2019.

From 1 November 2016 it is possible for manufacturers to be certified by SKG-IKOB. It will then be permissible to indicate the performance of the products you put on the market in a CE marking and in a declaration of performance (DoP). Certification only becomes compulsory after the ending of the coexistence period.

Are you aware that we can carry out smoke-resistance tests on windows, doors and facades on the basis of EN 1634-3 as well?



Did you know that SKG-IKOB Certificatie can also provide your VCA, ISO en MVO certification?
