Product certification – General Information

The certification of products for physical protection against burglary is carried out by the Evaluation Division of TECHNOTEST accredited as a Product Certification Body (PCB) according to the requirements of BDS EN ISO/IEC 17065 by EA ‘Bulgarian Accreditation Service’. The Division is holder of Certificate of Accreditation No 4 ОСП dated October 23rd, 2018 valid until October 23rd, 2022.

Product conformity assessment is carried out by the PCB following its own types of certification schemes according to the requirements of the main documents (standards and technical specifications) specified in its certification scope.

The Product Certification Body is fully independent and impartial as its activity is fully funded by TECHNOTEST JSC. Accepted and applied certification and impartiality policies are reflected in the Declarations of the Management Body.

During the certification process, for determination of the characteristics of the products included in the scope, the PCB uses the results of the tests carried out by the laboratory TECHNOTEST JSC and by external resources – laboratories with which framework contracts have been concluded.

At the same time, an assessment of the manufacturer and its ability to produce the evaluated product with the qualities proven during the tests is carried out.

As a result of the certification process, the PCB issues certification documents (certificates and appendices) and provides its customers with identification labels for product marking. By holding such certificate, each manufacturer proves the ability of its product to withstand the impact of attacks within the achieved sustainability class.

To maintain the certificate, the PCB, depending on the applied scheme, carries out continuous surveillance of the manufacturer and the product during the validity period of the certificate.

The issuing of a certificate and the follow-up surveillance that also includes monitoring of the market, provide the highest guarantee for the quality of the manufactured product.
