We use conformance testing to help you determine whether a product or system complies with the requirements of recognized national and international standards, specifications, contracts or regulations.
Many construction products require third party conformance testing in accordance with the Construction Products Regulations, allowing them to be CE marked in accordance with current legislation.
This will often prescribe testing for both material and structural properties and will require verification by a laboratory with Notified Body status.
Lucideon has a wide range of UKAS accredited tests leading to an extensive Notified Body Status for many products including bricks, tiles, adhesives, building components and full building systems. When new products are developed they may fall out of the scope of current standards, hence customized test programs can be developed to enable the relevant properties to be characterized and ultimately accepted by insurers, architects, specifiers and structural engineers.
