TÜV Rheinland Logo, Contact us at info@nl.tuv.com
TÜV Rheinland has a specialized group of people, based in the Netherlands, performing testing, inspections and certification of building materials.

After products have been tested on aspects such as strength and durability, mechanical stability, safety, energy economy, sustainable use of natural resources and quality in own TÜV Rheinland or other accredited labs, the products can be certified.

Certification of glass

Certification activities include making a certification contract, performing initial audits, initial factory inspections, sample taking audits (for products with certain safety related properties), Factory Production Control (FPC) audits and other surveillance audits.

Clients often think that after a test a certificate will be issued. But testing is checking a product or service by use of a set of requirements and test methods (a standard) if that product/service fulfills the requirements of that standard. Testing results in a test report (not a certificate), it reflects the status of that one product (not: the production) on that moment. A test report says nothing about the quality of the ongoing production.
Certification is an ongoing process: the fabrication of the product is under continuous surveillance by the certification body, certification results in a certificate, if test results and audit results were and stay positive.

Certification of glass, voluntary of mandatory?

Certification of a construction products like glass can be voluntary or mandatory. It depends on the Attestation of Conformity system (level) of the product with its characteristics under the old Construction Products Directive or, from 1 July 2013, the ‘Systems of assessment and verification of constancy of performance’ under the new Construction Products Regulation EU No 305/2011 (law from 1 July in all EU member states).

In case of fire, bullet or explosion resistant materials, mostly system 1 is applicable, meaning that certification is mandatory. Clients can also decide for voluntary certification, to distinguish themselves from their competitors.

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad
    and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad
    is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted
    to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my
    permission. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from
    being ripped off? I’d genuinely appreciate
    it.

    What you composed made a great deal of sense. But,
    what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome post
    title? I am not suggesting your content
    isn’t solid, however what if you added a title to maybe grab a
    person’s attention? I mean Certification and testing of glass by TÜV Rheinland | Blog of TÜV Rheinland Nederland is kinda plain. You might look at Yahoo’s
    home page and note how they create post titles to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get readers
    excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
