Project Description

Product Certification

On an increasingly global and competitive market, certification represents a strategic tool for the marketing of products and quality assurance of Made in Italy.
Product Certification is issued by an independent body (Certification Body) that grants a certificate, or the right of use of a Mark.
Product certification is a voluntary tool and is applied only to 1st choice products. Its purpose is to guarantee compliance with the Reference Standard (for ceramic tiles, EN 14411) and/or with specific requirements. Essentially, the product certification guarantees the quality of the product; see the page Product Quality.
The procedure to obtain the Mark, get through audits of the quality management system in the production plant, material sampling, laboratory tests carried out by instruments regularly checked.
The compliance tests are carried out on a lot of products; then is extended also to those that have not sampled and tested. So, compliance does not refer exclusively to the sampled lot, but to the entire annual production (of such product) that the Company has requested to certify.
