In cases where a manufacturer does not intend to CE mark its product, a Construction Product Certificate is an alternative that increases the credibility of the construction product in a sales context and in its approval for use.
A CE marked product with declared properties will not conform with Swedish legislation simply because it is CE marked.
There are various ways for a manufacturer to assert conformity with the national criteria for a construction product. A particularly credible approach is for an accredited certification body to issue a Construction Product Certificate for a product in line with Boverket’s regulations on type approved construction products.
If the manufacturer wishes, Kiwa Sweden will issue a Construction Product Certificate that replaces the type approval. A type approval previously issued by Kiwa Sweden may be converted to a Construction Product Certificate and retain the same number as the former type approval. The labelling rules mean that Boverket’s forked mark will then be replaced with Kiwas´ S-label and the phrase “Type Approval Certificate” replaced with the phrase “Construction Product Certificate”. The regulations for Construction Product Certificates are the same as for type approvals and the service is provided outside the accreditation framework.
We are also able to issue renewed decisions on previous Construction Product Certificates when they expire.
Lists of approved products can be requested from us. The products are also registered in the database of certified products on our website.
