Notified Body number 0063 for Kiwa Netherlands

December 6, 2019

Kiwa Netherlands formerly had three Notified Body numbers for the CE testing and certification of products for the European market. European regulations determine that each certifying body must have one unique number. Therefore, going forward the European Commission has requested Kiwa to use one NB number. From now on, Kiwa Netherlands only use the NB number 0063. If you have been certified under the ‘old’ numbers NB 0620 and NB 0956, you don't need to adjust your CE certificates. For more information please have a look at this page.
