You are...

Are you a manufacturer, a distributor or trader. And are your TPE pipe joint seals not yet certified? Then Kiwa can help you further. Our certification experts in this area will study your question and will work with you to find the right solution to obtain the KOMO quality mark in accordance with the Kiwa assessment guideline. The certification scheme applies to TPE materials that are supplied to manufacturers of end products.

Your own Kiwa quality mark

The assessment guideline BRL2020-1 is a certification scheme for TPE pipe joint seals for non-pressure waste water and drainage  -material. The TPE pipe joints are intended for use in seals in piping systems for non-pressure underground drainage and sewerage at temperatures up to 45°C, intermittently up to 90 °C. However, you will not receive the certificate just like that. We place high demands on the entry control of the raw materials, controls during the production process and on the end product. When requesting a quote, you indicate for which products and which technical area you want to be certified. 

Procedure obtaining KOMO product certificate

If you have agreed to our quotation, we will conduct an admission investigation. We are investigating whether you can obtain the KOMO product certificate in accordance with the requirements we have determined. We do this by means of a company audit and prescribed laboratory tests. The outcome of this determines whether you meet the requirements of BRL2020-1. If the result is positive, you will receive a KOMO certificate. The quality system - as laid down in the IKB - is then regularly checked by us. In this way your product continues to meet the set requirements. Your customers can be confident that your product offers them what they consider important; quality.
