Kiwa Telefication is a Notified Body for assessments and certification of fire protection equipment in accordance with the Marine Equipment Directive 2014/90/EU and the latest Implementing EU Regulation.
Kiwa’s fire experts give guidance and assistance to manufacturers to obtain EC Type Examination certificates (Module B). We are familiar with the requirements for reaction to fire and fire resistance for the applicable materials and products. We guide you in selecting the proper test program to cover the aimed field of application for your products. Tests have to be carried out in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025 by accredited test laboratories or witnessed by a qualified Kiwa surveyor.
To obtain a Module D certificate, Kiwa will conduct audits at your production site(s) to assess and verify your production-quality assurance for the products under Module B certificate(s).
Having a Module D certificate you must mark your products with the “wheel mark” (the MED mark of conformity) and state in a EU Declaration of Conformity that the requirements according to the MED Directive 2014/90/EU have been fulfilled. This is mandatory for the supply and installation of marine equipment on board EU ships.
The Kiwa Telefication MED certification program covers fire protection marine equipment like
• non-combustible materials,
• pipe and cable penetrations,
• low-flammable surface materials (e.g. coatings, veneers, floor coverings),
• fixed fire detection and alarm systems and fire alarm devices.
Kiwa Telefication is also a notified and accredited certification body for electronic and radio equipment and wireless technology.
The MED Application Package gives you all information and documentation for submitting applications for MED certificates to Kiwa Telefication.
