HVACR certification companies HVACR products Eurovent Certification and Certita have signed a Memorandum of understanding with the aim of merging their activities.
The intention of the signatories is to develop the proposed certifications, in line with the services already provided, with the marks NF, CSTBat and EUROVENT CERTIFICATION, while enlarging the scope of products dealt with and increasingly operating at an international level.
In a statement the companies said: “A full service would be proposed, expected to be better suited to the specific background of each country regarding voluntary certification of performance for HVACR products.
The aim is to back up the development of innovative equipments and to provide useful guidance to users and prescribers.
This issue is embedded within the general objectives of decreasing the greenhouse gas emissions and improving the energetic efficiency, in which regard the promotion of product performance plays a key role.
The considered merge would provide manufacturers with a single access to get the certification best suiting their marketing needs.”
CERTITA is mainly involved in the fields of Heating (NF Mark Radiators and NF Mark Heat Pump…) Thermal solar (NF Mark Domestic Solar Heaters, CSTBat Mark Solar devices and Solar Keymark) and Ventilation (NF Mark Mechanically controlled ventilation and CSTBat Air inlets..)
The main activity of EUROVENT CERTIFICATION is the certification, operated at the European level, of performances of HVAC-R products.
