In mid-2013 a new European directive came into force. The law covering CE (Conformité Européenne) marks is a quality control measure to ensure that products being bought and sold within the EU are safe to use. The safety assessment covers technical components, manufacturing methods and chemical composition to rigorously check for any potential negative impact that the goods could have upon the user or the wider environment. Failure to meet CE standards by manufacturers and failure to use CE registered products by those in construction can result in prosecution for failing to ensure public safety.
Our hygienic cladding brands have obtained CE certification meaning that they have been recognised as being a products that are of high quality. Our range has achieved many quality assurance and safety certifications that are recognised around the world including ASTM E84, ISO 9001, IOS 14001 & ISO 18001. BioClad is also continuously tested to ensure its antimicrobial silver is and remains effective after installation. To view BioClad’s accreditations, click here.
