Safety testing for gas appliances and boilers certification
Consumers rely on gas appliances and boilers to keep them warm, provide hot water and generate heat to safely cook food on a daily basis. Appliances powered by burning gas must therefore be rigorously tested and recognizably certified by an independent third party.
Our EC/EU type-examination and production control services ensure your products are in compliance with mandatory safety directives and regulations. We provide comprehensive testing and certification relevant to modules B and G for your gas appliances and boilers. Our conformity assessment certification in accordance with modules C2, D, and E allows you to label your appliances as CE approved to sell on the European market.

Our clients are provided a simple solution for gaining market access, broken into the following four steps:
Client submits a mandatory application to one Notified Body only (duplicate applications for the same model are not allowed) to determine ordered services (type-test certification, surveillance, or both). Applicants must also provide information about the gas appliances to be tested and certified including main technical characteristics.
Our application analysis determines the minimum number of tests and samples necessary according to rules of compliance. We submit a calculation of time and costs as the basis of the service contract.
- Testing in accordance with modules B and G
We test the gas appliances in our laboratories – or in client labs that meet testing requirements. Our testing is state-of-the-art and driven by European harmonized standards.
- Conformity assessment with surveillance according to modules C2, D and E
Inspection or audit surveillance services are conducted according to the applicable module selected by the manufacturer.
Approved and under surveillance products are requested to bear the CE marking, proving the safety compliance needed to access the European market.
Products to be placed in markets outside the European Union will be tested and certified on a case-by-case basis according to respective local legal standards and regulations.
