Kiwa test center and CB for HP Keymark

Kiwa is now an empowered Certification Body CB and recognized test center for HP Keymark, the independent voluntary European certification mark supporting heat pump quality in the European market. This means Kiwa’s heat pump experts can test equipment and components against applicable standards and provide manufacturers with the HP Keymark certificate.

The HP Keymark certification mark (ISO type 5 certification) was originally developed by the heat pump industry and is currently managed by European Committee for standardization (CEN). The certification is designed for heat pumps, combination heat pumps and hot water heaters covered by Ecodesign, EU Regulation 813/2013 and 814/2013.

The basis of the HP Keymark is independent, third party testing. HP Keymark certified manufacturers of heat pump equipment and components demonstrate compliance with Heat Pump Keymark scheme product requirements and Ecodesign efficiency requirements.

As an HP Keymark Empowered Certification Body and Recognized Test Center Kiwa can test and certify air-water, brine-water and water-water heat pumps against the following standards:
