CE certification

OCBS was recognised by the Belgian State as notified body to perform tasks in the framework of the European Regulation (EU) 305/2011 and as such has been registered by the European Commission with number 1148 for the following products, further referred to as products concerned:

These mandates were given to the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) by the European Commission and the European Free Trade Association in connection with the implementation of the European Construction Products Directive.

The articles of the relevant standards cited in its Annex ZA meet the requirements of the mandate. Annex ZA contains the list of essential characteristics and the applicable systems of assessment and verification of constancy of performance. In function of the applicable system, use should be made of a notified body that carries out tasks that may lead to the delivery of a certificate, on the basis of which the manufacturer may then proceed to draw up a declaration of performance and affix the CE marking on its products.

This notification of OCBS to the European Commission by the Belgian State was made on the basis of the Royal Decree of 21 July 2014.

The summary below can be drawn up on the basis of the Commission communications in the context of the implementation of Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing Council Directive 89/106/EEC:
