Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies the scheme for the evaluation of conformity of cements to their corresponding product specification standards, including certification of conformity by a certification body. The standard provides technical rules for factory production control by the manufacturer, including autocontrol testing of samples, and for the tasks of the certification body. It also provides rules for actions to be followed in the event of non-conformity, the procedure for the certification of conformity and requirements for dispatching centres. In this European Standard the word “cement” is used to refer both to common cements as defined in EN 197-1 and to other cements and binders for which the relevant product specification standard makes reference to this European Standard and which are submitted for certification. Such a cement is produced at a given factory and belongs to a particular type and a particular strength class, as defined and specified in the relevant product specification standard. The guidelines given in the CEN Report CR 14245  should be used for the application of this European Standard. This European Standard shall be linked with annexes ZA of European Standards covering cements and binders, i.e. EN 197-1, EN 14216, EN 14647, EN 413-1, EN 15743, in particular for the assignments of tasks to the manufacturer and to the certification body.
