Product Technical Committees of European Committee for Standardization

Harmonized product standards prepared by CEN Product Technical Committees define the test methods which are required for the product Attestation of Conformity procedure for the purpose of CE marking. The list of product standards harmonized with Construction Product Directive (CPD) – № 89/106/EC is available on the European Commission NANDO database (see External Links):
