WHAT THE SERVICE INCLUDES

Construction products

As part of activities related to the European Regulation 305/2011, the ANCCP Certification Agency operates both as a certification body and as an inspection body.

Specifically:

  • it issues the EC declaration of conformity for attestation systems 1 and 1+ and according to the harmonised standards specifications;
  • performs factory production controls for attestation systems 2+.
  • The system 1 declaration requires the intervention of a notified body; the basis for the affixing of the CE marking consists in the Declaration of Conformity of the manufacturer after:
  • having conducted the factory production control (FPC)
  • having prepared and implemented a programme of tests on products manufactured in compliance with the applicable harmonised standards.
  • after the release of the Product Compliance Certificate by a notified body on the basis of:

  1. an Initial Inspection of factory production (FPC);
  2. initial type testing (ITT).

In addition, the Notified Body takes care of performing continuous surveillance of factory production (FPC) with periodic inspections.

The system 1+ declaration requires the intervention of a notified body; the basis for the affixing of the CE marking consists in the Declaration of Conformity of the manufacturer after:

  • having conducted the factory production control (FPC);
  • having prepared and implemented a programme of tests on products manufactured in compliance with the applicable harmonised standards;
  • after the release of the Product Compliance Certificate by a notified body on the basis of:

  1. an Initial Inspection of factory production (FPC),
  2. initial type testing (ITT).

In addition, the Notified Body shall perform periodic inspections to see to:

  • continuous surveillance of factory production (FPC);
  • verification tests of product samples taken at the Factory, on the Market or at the work site.

The system 2+ declaration requires the intervention of a notified body; the basis for the affixing of the CE marking consists in the Declaration of Performance of the manufacturer after:

  • having conducted the factory production control (FPC);
  • having performed the initial type testing (ITT) on the product;
  • the issuance of the Certificate of Factory Process Control (FPC) by a Notified Body on the basis of an initial inspection of factory production.

In addition, the Notified Body takes care of performing continuous surveillance of factory production (FPC) with periodic inspections.

WHO THE SERVICE IS INTENDED FOR

The service is intended for manufacturers of all products (materials, products, systems, etc.), intended to be permanently incorporated in construction works (buildings and civil engineering works), which should ensure compliance with at least one of the essential requirements relating to:

  • mechanical strength and stability
  • safety in case of fire
  • health, safety and environment
  • safety in use
  • protection against noise
  • energy savings and heat retention
  • sustainable use of natural resources

ACTIVITIES

The ANCCP Certification Agency is authorised to certify products in the following areas:

AGGREGATES

Certification system:

The certification of conformity system used is system 2+, as a result of the fact that the products are used in applications with high safety requirements.

Reference standards:

  • UNI EN 12620 "Aggregates for concrete"
  • UNI EN 13043 "Aggregates for bituminous mixtures"
  • UNI EN 13055-1 "Light aggregates for concrete, mortar and grout"
  • UNI EN 13139 "Aggregates for mortar"
  • UNI EN 13242 "Aggregates for unbound and hydraulically bound materials"
  • UNI EN 13138-1 "Large aggregates for hydraulic works (armourstone)"

BITUMINOUS MIXTURES

Certification system:

In case of use(s) in areas and roads subject and not subject to traffic, the certification of compliance system used is system 2+.

Reference standards:

  • EN 13108-1 "Asphalt concrete"
  • EN 13108-2 "Asphalt concrete for very thin layers"
  • EN 13108-3 "Soft asphalt"
  • EN 13108-4 "Rolled asphalt"
  • EN 13108-5 "Stone mastic asphalt"
  • EN 13108-6 "Mastic asphalt"
  • EN 13108-7 "Porous asphalt"

CEMENT

Certification system:

The certification of conformity system requested is 1+ and 2+ (only for EN 459-1)

Reference standards:

  • UNI EN 197-1 "Composition, specifications and conformity criteria for common cements"
  • UNI EN 197-4 "Composition, specifications and conformity criteria for low early strength blastfurnace cements"
  • UNI EN 459-1 "Building limes.Definitions, specifications and conformity criteria"
  • UNI EN 413-1:2011 "Masonry cements.Definitions, specifications and conformity criteria

STEEL

Certification system:

The certification of conformity system requested is 2+.

Reference standard:

UNI EN 1090-1 "Execution of steel and aluminium structures - Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components"

UNI EN 1090-2 "Execution of steel and aluminium structures - Technical requirements for steel structures"

UNI EN 1090-3 "Execution of steel and aluminium structures - Technical requirements for aluminium structures"

This standard specifies requirements for the conformity assessment of structural components in steel and aluminium used for the construction of steel and mixed (concrete + steel) structures.

The elements can be used directly in the works or be incorporated in the same after being assembled.The standard applies to production in series and not.Example of steel structures which must be marked: sheds, shelters, emergency stairs, awnings, etc.

If any welding activities are involved, they must be conducted in compliance with UNI EN ISO 3834 and therefore with the qualification of the inherent procedures and of the welders.

The ANCCP Certification Agency S.r.l., operating as a Notified Body, issues companies a Certificate of Factory Production Control, which is indispensable for the manufacturer in order to affix the CE marking.

The certificate is issued following an initial inspection, and maintained with successive periodic checks.
