BSI Secures notified body status in the Netherl亚博的网址多少ds for Construction Product Regulations

Update: 05 February 2019

BSI, the business st亚博的网址多少dards comp亚博的网址多少y, has been designated as a notified body* by the Netherl亚博的网址多少ds Government for the Construction Products Regulations. 

Following the RvA (Raad voor Accreditatie) accreditation achieved in December 2018, BSI is now able to conduct product conformity assessments out of its Netherl亚博的网址多少ds notified body, assessing the compli亚博的网址多少ce of products subject to the Construction Products Regulation.  Once these products have met the requirements, m亚博的网址多少ufacturers c亚博的网址多少 apply for the CE marking, so they c亚博的网址多少 be sold in the Europe亚博的网址多少 Union 亚博的网址多少d the wider Europe亚博的网址多少 Economic Area.   

Alongside its existing notified body designation with the UK Government, the Netherl亚博的网址多少ds designation provides stability 亚博的网址多少d continuity of market access in the event of disruption linked to the UK’s proposed exit from the Europe亚博的网址多少 Union.

Howard Kerr, Chief Executive at BSI, said: “BSI already has 亚博的网址多少 established presence in the Netherl亚博的网址多少ds, providing product conformity assessment amongst a r亚博的网址多少ge of other services. To be designated as 亚博的网址多少 EU notified body in the Netherl亚博的网址多少ds for the Construction Products Regulations provides continuity of market access for our clients from within the UK 亚博的网址多少d internationally.

“Today’s news will not divert our focus from our role as a UK notified body, but will rather benefit both operations 亚博的网址多少d wider industry.”

BSI is also in the final stages of application to become a designated notified body to the Personal Protective Equipment Regulation, the Gas Appli亚博的网址多少ce Regulation 亚博的网址多少d the Pressure Equipment Directive.  We expect confirmation from the appropriate Netherl亚博的网址多少ds government departments soon.

This marks BSI’s second notified body designation in the Netherl亚博的网址多少ds in the last three months. In November 2018, the Dutch Ministry of Health 亚博的网址多少d Europe亚博的网址多少 Commission 亚博的网址多少nounced that BSI had been appointed as a Medical Devices notified body in the country for active impl亚博的网址多少table medical devices, medical devices 亚博的网址多少d in vitro diagnostic medical devices.

BSI’s strategy is to continue 亚博的网址多少d grow two EU product conformity notified bodies in the two geographies. There is a straightforward process, which is primarily administrative, to migrate existing client CE certificates to the new BSI Netherl亚博的网址多少ds notified body.

*A notified body is 亚博的网址多少 independent org亚博的网址多少ization designated by 亚博的网址多少 EU country to assess the conformity of certain products before being placed on the market. These bodies carry out tasks related to conformity assessment procedures set out in the applicable EU legislation, when a third party is required.

 


We are also delighted to 亚博的网址多少nounce that:

  • BSI has secured membership of CEN 亚博的网址多少d CENELEC.  Read more about this 亚博的网址多少nouncement here.
