aims of the keymark for thermal insulation products
To provide a quality certification mark to enhance CE marking;

To demonstrate continuing conformity with European standards;

To provide a coordinated certification activity within the framework of CEN/CENELEC;

To provide a mark with wide scale acceptance by manufacturers, specifiers and users.

Aims of the KeyMark for thermal insulation products
slide3

Overview of standards within the scope of CEN/TC88

Product standards (10) for ‘Thermal insulation products for buildings - Factory made products of … Specification’

  • EN 13162 mineral wool (MW)
  • EN 13163 expanded polystyrene (EPS)
  • EN 13164 extruded polystyrene foam (XPS)
  • EN 13165 rigid polyurethane foam (PUR)
  • EN 13166 phenolic foam (PF)
  • EN 13167 cellular glass (CG)
  • EN 13168 wood wool (WW)
  • EN 13169 expanded perlite (EPB)
  • EN 13170 expanded cork (ICB)
  • EN 13171 wood fibre (WF)
slide4

Overview of standards within the scope of CEN/TC88

List to be extended with other standards in preparation 

  • products for building equipment and industrial installations
  • in-situ formed products
  • external insulation composite systems (ETICS)

Standards/documents in relation to certification

  • EN 13172, Thermal insulation products – Evaluation of conformity
  • EN ISO/IEC 17025, General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories
  • CEN/CENELEC - Internal regulations - Part 4: Certification
  • (SDG-5 N22) CEN/CENELEC European Mark Scheme for Thermal Insulation Products
slide5

CE-Marking

Keymark

  • Mandatory within the EEA ;
  • Minimum legal conformity requirement;
  • Conformity with the harmonised European specifications + according to attestation of conformity systems ( e.g. the TC88 products 1, 3-ITT and 4-FPC, no audit testing by 3rd party and a limited number of characteristics covered) ;
  • Certification bodies (system 1/1+), Inspection bodies (2/2+) and testing laboratories (3) approved and notified by the member states of the EC ;
  • Manufacturers’ responsibility for affixing
  • Voluntary for CEN-member states according strict rules for all parties;
  • Product certification mark;
  • Certified conformity with EN-standards :
    • Certification of FPC & all product performances ;
    • Regular surveillance of the FPC ;
    • Independent 3th party testing of samples (‘ yearly audit testing ’) ;
  • Certification by SDG5-empowered organisations and registered laboratories ;
  • Affixing by the manufacturer in accordance with Keymark scheme rules.

Relationship CE-Marking vs. Keymark

slide6

Benefits of the KeyMark

  • The KeyMark scheme for
  • thermal insulating products
    • =
  • an answer to the needs of industry and purchasers.
slide7

Benefits of the KeyMark

  • The promotion of EN-standards for thermal insulating products;
  • A quality certification mark enhancing the CE mark and assuring continuing conformity of ALL product characteristics;
  • An independent confirmation of the manufacturers’ performance data and product information;
  • The potential rationalisation of existing certification needs for similar products throughout Europe, providing cost savings;
  • Multi-lateral recognition of participating certification bodies and laboratories.
slide8

Background

The Keymark scheme for

thermal insulating products

ensuring continuing conformity through 3rd party testing against all the requirements of the standard

an enhancement

of the limited requirements of CE-marking.

slide9

Background

The request of the industry and purchasers

is supported by:

  • CEN-statutes:
    • “to encourage the identification of products which conform to European standards”
    • “facilitates the development of procedures for the mutual recognition of conformity test results to standards, as well as for European systems of conformity assessment to standards, to be implemented either by CEN itself or by other parties”
  • CEN-Certification Board (CCB):
    • To set up internal rules for certification systems, organized by the CEN National Member Body through its Certification Body recognized by the CEN Certification Board and through Certification Bodies empowered by the CEN Certification Board.
slide10

Background

The request of the industry and purchasers

is supported by:

  • CEN/TC88
    • to request member states to appeal to the CPD-mandate n°103 as it deals with only the fire performance for a higher level of attestation of confirmity system;
    • to ensure a mutual confidence within the use of the TC88-standards, especially for:
      • the test methods
      • the implementation of the D-performance based on 90/90 ( = 90% of the production with a confidence level of 90%)
      • the product grouping on performance
