Product Certification and CE marking

The purpose of the regulation of construction products and CE marking is to eliminate technical obstacles between member states in trading in the European Economic Area. A CE marking and a declaration of performance contain important information about the product which helps the clients and end users to check the performance of the product and compare it to other products. A CE marking shows that the manufacturer has assessed the product pursuant to the applicable requirements and the product is compliant with the safety, health, and environmental requirements of the European Union.

CE marking of a product is compulsory if the product is subject to the harmonised European standard (hEN) or the European Technical Assessment (ETA) and a CE marking is the only option for demonstrating compliance of the product or system with the regulation of construction products.

NSC Estonia OÜ has been approved in the European Union as a notified body (notified body no. 2866) and is entitled to issue relevant certificates. The approval and field of a notified body can be verified in the NANDO database.
