Product Certification

Quality is not a coincidence: Certified products create trust among your clients

Independent certifications have a high level of credibility and recognition among consumers, dealers, architects, house owners and processors. Certified products thus have a real competitive advantage.

The independence and impartiality of ift Certification and Surveillance Body is guaranteed by the following recognitions:

  • PÜZ body (BAY18) according to German technical procedures
  • Notified product certification body in Europe (No. 0757)
  • Flexible accreditation according to EN ISO/IEC 17065
  • Accreditation according to EN ISO 17020 to pass on synergies of combined surveillance from other certification bodies

Thus, ift Rosenheim is a recognized and authorized body to carry out the necessary tests, certifications and surveillance for marking with the conformity mark (Ü-mark) or CE mark.

Furthermore, the international cooperations guarantee a recognition of the ift Certificate of Conformity.

With our flexible accreditation, we are authorized to develop new or individual certification schemes at short notice - e.g. in response to client inquiries or requirements from the market or industry circles.

ift Certificate

Documents the compliance of a product or service with a standard or an ift certification program. It is based on an initial test and regular monitoring/auditing, is limited in time and describes the assured quality and serviceability of products bearing the ift-certified mark.

Aimed at: manufacturers, licensees for passing on to building owners, planners, architects, authorities.

ift Product Passport

The document summarizes all proven performance characteristics of a product family according to product standard. It is valid as a report for the initial test (TT), is time-limited and is based on ift certification. It forms the most important part of the technical documentation required by the Construction Products Regulation and confirms the usability of the evidence in the context of CE marking.

Aimed at: manufacturers, licensees as a basis for CE marking.

ift System Passport

The document summarizes all proven performance characteristics of a product system (i.e. several product families) according to product standard. It is valid as a report for the initial test (TT), is time-limited and is based on ift certification. The system passport contains several product passports of a system in one document and forms an important part of the technical documentation required by the Construction Products Regulation. It thus confirms the usability of the evidence within the scope of CE marking.

Aimed at: manufacturers and licensers and, if applicable, to be passed on to licensees
