Ensure your product conformity and access the entire European market
Closing systems are one of the most important elements in the construction industry. Doors and windows provide buildings and users with the optimum climate and comfort conditions they need to carry out their daily activities, providing protection against climate elements as well as thermal and acoustic insulation.
Marketing of these products in Europe are governed by the Construction Products Regulation 305/2011. The manufacturers or their representatives in the European Union are solely responsible for ensuring their products comply with the provisions of the regulation, indicating their conformity by the CE mark. CE marking of these products, according to their use, is regulated by a 3 or 1 assessment system, and requires the intervention of a Notified Body to perform the initial type tests (sys. 3).

CE marking of windows and doors is based on harmonized EN standards:
