The certification mark applies to anti-corrosion coatings intended to protect the treated materials against corrosion.
The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. The test procedure developed by TÜV SÜD is based on standards including EN ISO 8565 (Metals and alloys – atmospheric corrosion testing – General requirements), EN ISO 2409 (Paints and varnishes – cross-cut test) and EN ISO 4628-3 (Paints and varnishes. Evaluation of degradation of coatings.
Designation of quantity and size of defects, and of intensity of uniform changes in appearance. Part 3: Assessment of degree of rusting).
The certified product was analysed for its ingredients and does not include any heavy metals.
The voluntary certification mark with the statement “Type tested” is issued for products and components. The statement demonstrates that the product/component was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements. The certification criteria vary depending on the products in question.
Periodic surveillance of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification which includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.
As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product check.
In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will be withdrawn and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
