Voluntary product certification

Voluntary product certification is performed by the institute as an accredited Product certification body. Voluntary certification provides manufacturers with increased customer confidence in their products, because, unlike the certificate and the declaration of parameters according to CPR, respectively Act no. 133/2013 Coll., in the so-called regulated area, where the subject of (mandatory) certification are only some products and only those of their properties that are related to the basic requirements for constructions, the voluntary certificate confirms also the parameters of properties beyond the scope of properties e.g. from Annex ZA of the harmonized standard, or parameters of product properties which are not covered by CPR or Act no. 133/2013 Coll.

For products for which the certification body has detailed rules, the manufacturer is, in addition to granting the certificate, allowed to mark the certified product with the TSÚS quality mark:

The procedure and requirements are contained in the general rules for awarding the quality mark and in the specific rules for issuing a product certificate for individual (selected) product groups.

Optional certification for these selected product groups is governed by the internal TSÚS regulations: General rules for awarding the TSÚS Quality Label and Rules CV/TSUS/05 for the product group: Dry mortar mixtures based on inorganic binders for bonding of thermal insulation boards and laying of reinforcing grids. Other previously existing rules for a selected groups of products, were cancelled form the date 1 January 2019.

We recommend manufacturers who are interested in the voluntary certification of their products to consult their intention with the staff of the Product certification body (ÚPZ) or to fill in and send an application for product certification (voluntary certification).
