Certification Center Geosynthetics - Notified Body 0516
The certification center geosynthetics at the Saxon Textile Research Institute (STFI) was successfully accredited by the Deutsche Akkreditierungsstelle GmbH (DAkkS) in spring 2013. Along with the certificate, the compliance of the requirements according to article 43 of the Building Products act for factory-owned production control was certified to the certification center.
The subsequently applied notification for activities within the scope of the accreditation note (certificate of conformity 2+ for geosynthetics) was extended with order from May 31, 2013, by the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt).
The accreditation of certification center geosynthetics was prolonged until year 2018.
Because STFI is already notified at the EU with number 0516 for the product sector of personal protective equipment (PPE), this denotation was enhanced for the product sector "geosynthetics". The certification center geosynthetics continues its work as notified body 0516, which already started in 2001 as a subsidiary company of the STFI, the Institute for Technical Textiles (ITT GmbH).
