The IETcc-CSIC obtains the ENAC accreditation for the certification of horizontal road marking products, in accordance with the UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17065:2012 Standard.

The Unit for Technical Evaluation of Innovative Products of the Torroja Institute has received accreditation from the National Accreditation Entity (ENAC) to carry out the certification of horizontal signaling products (road markings) based on the European Evaluation Document (EAD) 230011-00-0106. The Torroja Institute, 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/ETA). Likewise, the 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 carry out the voluntary CE marking of the products evaluated.

Since last July 29, 2022, 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 UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17065:2012 standard: Requirements for organizations that certify products, processes and services.

There are currently more than 50 horizontal signage products certified by the IETcc, manufactured by a dozen companies, both national and from other European countries such as Ireland, the Netherlands and France.

The Performance Certificates issued by the IETcc 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 Technical Evaluation Unit for Innovative Products.
