EUCEB Certification
Print

FIBRANgeo stonewool products are certified by the Fraunhofer-ITEM (Certificate No. n.02G03002 of 05/19/2003). Directive 97/69/ EC introduced Note Q, specifically for mineral wool, which states that “the classification carcinogen need not apply, if it can be shown that the substance complies with certain conditions”. It is important to note that the European Commission confirmed the validity of Note Q, adopting the position of the Official Journal of the European Union No.C155E 07.03.2003 2003/C155/148, based on new epidemiological studies, including the IARC No. 81 of 2001.

The European Commission recently adopted EC Regulation 790/2009 (August 10, 2009), an amendment that adopted Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and Council on classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures, published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 5.9.2009. The regulation was void for classification as irritant (R38) for mineral fibres.

FIBRAN has also proceeded in acquiring the voluntary certification mark EUCEB (European Certification Board for Mineral Wool Products) for all FIBRANgeo stonewool products. EUCEB is an independent organization whose procedures ensure compliance of mineral wool insulation products with the Directive 97/69/EC. Further audits are performed by certified laboratories at regular intervals.
