IETcc-CSIC obtains the ENAC accreditation for the certification of road marking products, in accordance with ISO/IEC 17065:2012 Standard.
The Innovative Products Assessment Unit of the Torroja Institute (CSIC) has received accreditation from the Spanish National Accreditation Body (ENAC) to carry out the certification of road marking products based on the European Assessment Document (EAD) 230011-00-0106. Torroja Institute (CSIC), as a member of EOTA, had already been acting as a Technical Assessment Body for the initial assessment of these products and the issuance of their European Technical Assessments (ETA). Likewise, IETcc is a Notified Body (1219) for the issuance of Certificates related to factory production control of construction products that, based on an ETA, allow manufacturers to issue their Declarations of Performance and make the voluntary CE marking of their products.
Since last 29th July, accreditation 205/C-PR416 recognizes that these tasks of continuous monitoring of factory production control of paints, thermoplastics and cold plastics for road markings are carried out in compliance, in addition, with the requirements of the ISO/IEC 17065:2012 standard: Conformity assessment – Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services.
There are currently more than 50 road marking products certified by the IETcc, manufactured by around ten companies, both national and from other European countries such as Ireland, the Netherlands and France.
The Certificates of Constancy of Performances issued by IETcc-CSIC for these products will now have the ENAC seal that will make it easier for manufacturers to present their products with an extra guarantee, as well as easy and direct recognition of the Certificates in international markets.
Obtaining this accreditation confirms the commitment to quality and the constant search for excellence in the development of the projects of the Innovative Products Assessment Unit IETcc-CSIC.
