Performance assessment of free-standing chimneys
DEKRA's certification service carries out a Factory Production Control (FPC) assessment and awards a conformity certificate for the internal production control. EN 13084-7 is a harmonised standard and refers to standard EN 1090-2 for welding, as does standard EN 1090-1.
Having obtained the certificate, the company can draw up a declaration of performance and affix a CE marking to the product.
- EN 13084-7 standard is currently being renewed. Our experts are working actively to develop the standard.
Construction Product Regulation (CPR) and CE marking
In accordance with Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 of the European Parliament and the Council, the CE marking is required when a product falls within the scope of harmonised standards.
The scope of the harmonised EN 13084-7 standard includes single-wall free-standing chimneys and their flues. The products in question must bear the CE marking when they are placed on the market in Finland and the rest of the EU.
The basic characteristics of construction products must be demonstrated using a CE marking, if there is a harmonised European product standard for the construction product, and when the transition period of said standard has expired. The transition period for moving to the EN 13084-7 standard ended on 1 September 2013.
A prerequisite for the entitlement to affix the CE marking, in accordance with the EN 13084-7 standard, is the approval and supervision of the Notified Body and Factory Production Control.
Requirements for Factory Production Control Certificate:
The company has a valid, written description of its Factory Production Control (FPC) in accordance with the Standard EN 13084-7
- The company has implemented FPC
- The Notified Body has assessed that the company's factory and FPC in accordance with standards EN 13084-7, while also including the requirements in EN standard 1090-2 where applicable.
Before the product is brought to the market, the company must draw up a Declaration of Performance (DoP) of the product and affix the CE marking on the product. “The CE marking shall be affixed visibly, legibly and indelibly to the construction product or to a label affixed to it.” Where this is not possible or not warranted on account of the nature of the product, it shall be affixed to the packaging or the accompanying documents.” (CPR Article 9).
