CE Certification

 

1. CE Marking on a product is a manufacturer's declaration that the product complies with the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislations, in practice by many of the so-called Product Directives.*

Product Directives contains the "essential requirements" and/or "performance levels" and "Harmonized Standards" to which the products must conform. Harmonized Standards are the technical specifications (European Standards or Harmonization Documents) which are established by several European standards agencies (CEN, CENELEC, etc).
CEN stands for European Committee for Standardization.
CENELEC stands for European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization.


2. CE Marking on a product indicates to governmental officials that the product may be legally placed on the market in their country. 

3. CE Marking on a product ensures the free movement of the product within the EFTA & European Union (EU) single market (total 28 countries), and CE Marking on a product permits the withdrawal of the non-conforming products by customs and enforcement/vigilance authorities.

CB MARK - IEC

 

The IEC CB Scheme is by far the largest international certification scheme for products and is the closest there is to worldwide certification. It has more than 60 member countries, but it is also accepted outside these countries.

The CB Scheme facilitates the acceptance of test reports when applying for national safety certification of electrical products in the different IECEE member countries.

Also, it is today largely used between business partners in international trade for proving basic safety compliance of their electrical/electronic products.

 

  • Nemko has for many years been a leading issuer of CB Test Certificates, especially for IT products.
  • With a Nemko CB Test Certificate, manufacturers have a basis for achieving acceptance in most countries worldwide.
  • CB Test Certificates are today universally recognized also outside the member countries, and also in addition become the prime document for demonstrating product safety in international business-to-business trading of electrical equipment.
  • The CB Scheme is based on IEC standards, but at Nemko it normally also includes the European Standards (EN). It may then also be used as documentation for Declaration of Conformity and CE marking to the European Directive.
  • In addition, the products may be tested to national differences to the IEC/EN standards, in order for the CB test Certificate to be readily accepted in individual countries.
  • Manufacturers use this scheme to get both national certificates in various countries and to show that their products comply to relevant standards.
  • There is no annual license or fee for having the CB certificate.
  • IECEE is a part of IEC, the International Electrotechnical Commission

TiFQ - D.M. 25/2012

 

Tutti gli erogatori distribuiti da ODR Agua sono conformi al D.M. 25/2012

 

Il giorno 23 Marzo 2012 è stato pubblicato in Gazzetta Ufficiale il Decreto Ministeriale n. 25/2012 del Ministero della Salute “Disposizioni tecniche concernenti apparecchiature finalizzate al trattamento dell’acqua destinata al consumo umano”, che abroga il D.M. 443/90 “Regolamento recante disposizioni tecniche concernenti apparecchiature per il trattamento domestico di acque potabili”. Con la pubblicazione del DM 25, molte sono le cose destinate a cambiare nell’universo del trattamento dell’acqua destinata al consumo umano, e le conseguenze di questo cambiamento  interesseranno i produttori, i distributori, gli installatori, i manutentori e anche i consumatori, ossia gli utenti finali.

Il Decreto Ministeriale n. 25/2012 si inserisce in un contesto critico, in quanto la pubblicazione del decreto 443 risale al 1990, quando ancora non era disponibile una regolamentazione relativa alla qualità dell’acqua potabile (la Direttiva 98/83 è stata pubblicata nel 1998 e recepita in Italia nel 2001 con il D.Lgs n.31). Inoltre dal 1990 ad oggi il panorama produttivo delle tecnologie per il trattamento dell’acqua si è notevolmente ampliato, sia per quanto riguarda la tipologia dei prodotti disponibili, sia per quanto riguarda l’attenzione alle fasi relative alle loro prestazioni, alla loro installazione e alla loro gestione.

Un primo punto molto importante di questo nuovo Decreto riguarda il costruttore e il distributore, che hanno la piena  responsabilità di mettere in commercio apparecchiature  “sicure”, sia per quanto riguarda i requisiti generali di sicurezza  che per quelli specifici, il che significa ad esempio conformità dei materiali costruttivi al contatto con acqua destinata al consumo umano (DM 174/2004). Inoltre  per poter garantire che l’acqua trattata resti sempre conforme ai requisiti di legge (DLgs n.31) è lasciata all’utilizzatore stesso la facoltà di valutare le performances del prodotto, effettuando prelievi prima e dopo il trattamento, e confrontandole con quanto dichiarato dal produttore. In secondo luogo, il  Decreto specifica chiaramente la responsabilità per il produttore ed il venditore circa cosa debba essere presente nelle istruzioni e nei manuali di montaggio ed istruzione delle apparecchiature, soprattutto evidenziando l’importanza della corretta manutenzione, che deve essere affidata ad aziende competenti, in grado di fornire supporto ed assistenza, e delle procedure di progettazione, installazione e collaudo delle apparecchiature connesse alla rete idrica, che devono essere svolta a cura di imprese abilitate all’esercizio di queste attività (DM 37/2008 ex legge 46/90).

Tutto ciò consentirà dunque solo a produttori e distributori “seri” di operare nel mercato, in quanto solo questi potranno fornire la “progettazione”, insieme al prodotto, ed in quanto l’installatore dovrà rilasciare una dichiarazione di conformità, che metterà il consumatore al riparo da qualsiasi successivo danno, anche derivante da pubblicità false e ingannevoli relative alle prestazioni dei prodotti , poiché essi dovranno essere pubblicizzati utilizzando esclusivamente argomentazioni fondate su dati scientifici comprovati (nazionali e non) e non generiche.

Nessuna apparecchiatura può essere propagandata o venduta sotto la voce generica di "depuratore d'acqua", ma solo con la precisa indicazione della specifica azione svolta.

AQUA ITALIA Association

 

The AQUA ITALIA Association has been established during the second half of the seventies, within the ANIMA Federation; its purpose was to join together the Italian ompanies manufacturing and producing plants, chemical products, equipment and component parts for the treatment of primary water, either for civil or general service and for swimming pools. In the run of years, member Companies have progressed to face and solve all the problems connected with water and its various uses, through :

  • drinking water production plants for aqueducts, municipalities, consortia, etc., using the most advanced clarification, flocculation, desalination, and disinfections processes, etc.
  • water treatment plants for home use, prevention of scaling and corrosion, improvement of organoleptic features (taste, smell, colour, etc.)
  • boilers for the production of steam or warm water, in order to prevent the negative impact of scaling and/or corrosion inside generators and steam/condensate piping;
  • cooling and humidification water, to overcome the problems linked to scaling, corrosion and development of biological events;
  • plants and chemical treatments for most industrial processes using and reusing water
  • plants for the treatment of water for swimming pools, both for public and private use, in order to assure a correct balance of water, and provide the user with the best hygienic and sanitation conditions along with the fitness and comfort offered by these structures.

WaterMark Certification Scheme

 

WaterMark™ is a certification trademark and used in relation to water supply, sewerage, plumbing and drainage goods. The plumbing industry in Australia supports the use of the WaterMark™ which, when used properly, is an excellent way of helping Australian consumers be confident about the quality of the plumbing product to which it is applied. The WaterMark™ is applicable to products manufactured both locally and overseas.

The aim of the WaterMark Certification Scheme is to:
• ensure products meet specific specifications and standards; and
• assist Australian consumers to identify quality products produced both in Australia and overseas.
