Does CE certifcation apply for floorcoverings?
According to Centexbel, labels aim at proving the compliance of products or services with a set of requirements (quality, safety, performance).
A populair certification is CE: The European standardisation committee CEN/TC14 has developed the harmonised standard EN14041 for carpets, laminate and resilient floor coverings such as vinyl, rubber and linoleum.
Because rugs, runners etc are not considered as building materials, CE marking does not apply to them by default. We do offer CE certification for children carpet and contract tiling. Due to the place of use, both products apply under strict regulation: CE children's toys 2009/48/EC and CE construction products 89/106/EEC respectively.
The CE regulation 2009/48/EC ensures a high-quality level for toys for kids. CE certification provides a certainty that the product is safe and can be used by children. The requirements concern the physical, mechanical, chemical and electrical properties as well as the flammability, hygiene and radioactivity of toys.
MercuryFlooring children carpet complies with all the essential safety requirements. The CE marking will be indicating the conformity.
The Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC) is a European regulation that puts a transparent and harmonized standard for manufactured construction goods traded and used within the European Union. The standards on this list may be used by construction products manufacturers to prove that their construction products comply with the essential requirements.
This regulation will apply for Carpet tiles within our product range.
