SSV is a laboratory notified in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) (EU) 305/2011.
The manufacturer of flat glass for construction applications is required to demonstrate the conformity of its products to European Standards issued by CEN (European Committee for Standardization).
The requirements for obtaining the CE Certificate of Conformity and/or executing the CE Declaration of Conformity of the product depend on the available Systems of Attestation of Conformity: in glass for construction Systems 1, 3 and 4 can be used.
Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro can provide its analytical and certification support for the obtainment of the CE marking for System 1 and System 3.
Execution of laboratory tests that contribute to the Initial Type Certification of the product (ITT – Product) and the Initial Type Certification of the characteristic performances (ITT of performances of characteristics) listed in the Product Standards.
Collaboration with the Notified Certification Body CSICert (CSI Group – csi-spa.com) to carry out the procedure leading to the awarding of the CE Certificate of Conformity, i.e. inspections at the manufacturer, approval of Factory Production Control and sampling.
Execution of laboratory tests that contribute to the Initial Type Attestation of the product (ITT – Product) and to the Initial Type Attestation of the characteristic performances (ITT of performances of characteristics) listed in the Product Standards.
Pursuant to Regulation 305/2011 and the mandate of the European Union to CEN M/135, tests for product qualification and determination of characteristic performances are carried out in accordance with the technical standards referred to in the harmonised European standards.
In order to determine the product’s performance, each of these standards lists the characteristics that can be determined and the European technical standards that establish the relative Test Methods (e.g. Fire Resistance, Bullet Resistance, Explosion Resistance, Resistance to manual attack, Pendulum Impact Resistance, Load Resistance, Sound Insulation, Thermal Insulation, Thermal and Radiometric Properties).
