Harmonisation courses & workshops

EGOLF harmonisation courses are open to both members and non-members.  The test methods used in the European system for attestation of conformity are described in detail in European standards developed by CEN and published by national standardization bodies. The results of fire test depend very much on how the various steps in the execution of the tests are carried out in practice. This may vary between labs.

EGOLF has therefore developed so called harmonization courses which are especially aimed at technicians with experience of carrying out tests in their own facilities. The purpose of the courses is to train technicians to carry out tests in a harmonized way, in accordance with the standards and in some cases according to EGOLF agreements where the text of the test standard is unclear. EGOLF has agreed that each member shall have at least one staff member trained in each test they offer, where harmonization courses are available for the method in question. New courses are developed on a regular basis.

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, it is not possible to confirm dates for all EGOLF courses in 2021.  Below is link to information about course on penetration seals (EN 1366-3) and linear joint seals (EN 1366-4), as well as provisional dates for door, shutter and openable window assemblies (EN 1634-1).  Information about other courses will be published as and when dates are known.
