Certification Department verifies the compliance of following construction products and materials:
Estonian Accreditation Centre has recognized our Certification Department’s competence as a certification body of construction products and materials (PC 011).
The Committee of Conformity Assessment Bodies belonging to Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications has granted the Technical Centre of Estonian Roads Ltd. the right to act as a notified certification body in the field of construction products and materials and has announced the European Commission about this decision. The Technical Centre of Estonian Roads Ltd.’s notified body (NB) identification number is 1403. The extent of notification by products is given in EU notified body information system (NANDO).
Our competence in the demonstration of conformity of construction products and materials is somewhat wider than this approval, since it also contains products for which harmonised standards have not been published yet. Harmonised standards have been published in the Official Journal of the European Union.
Demonstration of Conformity of Construction Products and Materials
Depending on the status of the technical specifications, the demonstration of conformity may either be mandatory (according to harmonised product standards) or voluntary (other appropriate technical specifications). Demonstration of conformity is performed according to the systems of conformity assessment specified in the Minister of Economic Affairs and Communications Regulation No. 49 from 26.07.2013 and the Minister of Economic Affairs and Infrastructure Regulation No. 74 from 22.09.2014 (with subsequent amendments) and in the harmonised standard. The ordinance specifies different conformity assessment systems for different types of products.
In case of certification systems 1 and 1+ the notified certification body issues construction product’s certificate of constancy of performance if the product meets the requirements. The certificate is a written proof that the product meets the requirements subject to assessment that are stated in the relevant act.
In case of certification system 2+ the approved certification body issues certificate of conformity of the factory production control, if continuous and proper internal control of the production is present. The certificate is a written proof that the production of the construction product is performed according to the requirements subject to assessment that are stated in the relevant act.
If the product meets the requirements and the procedures of demonstration of conformity have been applied, the manufacturer confirms the compliance of the product with the declaration of performance.
