KOMO is an independent institute, situated in Gouda (the Netherlands) and is striving to bring more clarity in the construction -and plumbing industries and has been doing so since 1962. By giving out the KOMO-certificates and having the KOMO quality mark, the institute serves as an independent supervisory body, inspecting and guaranteeing the quality of construction materials.
KOMO delivers several services in the field of product -and process investigation and certification and gives out the following certificates: KOMO product certificate – KOMO attestation – KOMO process certificate – KOMO management certificate.
KOMO also has a KOMO-attestation with a product certificate, which combines the benefits of a KOMO product certificate with a KOMO product certificate and a KOMO-attestation. An increasing amount of actors in the construction -and plumbing industries recognize the value KOMO adds to quality control. That is why the amount of products with a KOMO-attestation with product certificate is increases daily. Products which are supplied with KOMO-attestation with product certificate should at the least display the KOMO-label and the certificate number.
If you are going for an attestation with product certificate, you are choosing certainty about the product specifications of said product. This certainty is guaranteed by means of an external expert who is constantly checking if the construction product, building element or construction system complies with relevant regulations and legislation. However, a requirement is that the (eventual) processing instructions and the application of those, comply with the conditions of the attestation.
KOMO is also checking the specifications according to the systematics specified in the assessment guidelines. Thanks to the methodology applied by KOMO to inspect the quality of construction products -and processes, the client, prescriber, contractor and eventually the user himself are all enjoying the certainty that the product used correspondents with the technical (product) specification of the quality statement.
