All EU countries
must permit the sale of building products with CE marking. This means that
government authorities cannot impose further evidence or other requirements for
these products. In other words, the main purpose of the CE mark is to ensure
equal access to the EU internal market. This also means that anyone can engage
in commercial trade within the EU based on the same documentation. At the same
time, CE marking guarantees to customers and consumers that the product has
been produced according to a harmonised European standard and provides clear
references to the approved product characteristics. All outer doors have CE
marking from 1 November 2019.
CE marking is
carried out in accordance with two harmonised standards: NS-EN 14351-1 for
windows and outer doors not subject to fire safety regulations and NS-EN 16034,
which only applies to doors with fire safety requirements. Fire doors are
CE-marked for characteristics from both standards, while doors not subject to
fire safety regulations are only CE-marked for the characteristics required for
products must refer to a DOP (Declaration Of Performance). This is the most
important document supporting CE marking. A DOP contains detailed information
on the manufacturer, product and characteristics for which the product is
approved. From 1 November 2019, all outer doors from Rapp Bomek are CE-marked
based on the characteristics indicated. The label also includes a reference to
the website, where the DOP for the product can be found. Below are links to all
DOPs for outer doors produced by Rapp Bomek.
A number of outer
doors from Rapp Bomek sold in the months after 1 November 2019 may not be
CE-marked. This is either due to the time at which the order was placed or
warehouse circumstances. In either case, you can rest assured that all doors
have been tested and approved for the required characteristics.
Inner doors do
not currently require CE marking. This is because the standard for inner doors,
NS-EN 14351-2, has not yet been harmonised and published by the European
Commission. No deadline has been given for adoption of this standard, so inner
doors will not be CE-marked until further notice.
