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.
FIRE AND/OR SMOKE-RESISTANT WINDOWS AND DOORS UPDATE
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?
