The certification and supervision body of the Fraunhofer IBP offers competent and quality-assured support to manufacturers. After submission of the relevant documents, the evaluation of the application follows, verifying whether the necessary legal basis (i.e. Building Products Regulation BauPVO/CPR) has been met and determining whether the building product falls within the scope of expertise of the Fraunhofer IBP. Then a certification and supervision contract will be drawn up and forwarded to the client together with an offer and cost survey.
After signing of the contract by the manufacturer or applicant and confirmation by the certification body, an initial inspection and manufacturing control at the manufacturing plant (e.g. with control system 2+) will be scheduled. If necessary, samples can be taken for an initial product test in a test laboratory (e.g. with system 1).
Following a successful examination of the prerequisites regarding personnel and equipment at the plant, a summary report will be prepared and the certification documentation including the certificate will be provided to the client and manufacturer, respectively, to create the product documentation including declaration of performance, product label and external presentation.
