Call for Tender
NEN regularly carries out (European) standardisation or advisory projects for which we need external experts or partner organisations. In cases where the European Commission is (co)financing such a project, a public procurement procedure is often required for the selection of the external experts or partner organisations.
- Call for tender – Testing parameters used for the application of energy labeling and ecodesign regulations of water and space heaters - Deadline 2017-08-30
Under Specific Agreement N° CEN/534-535/2015-04 the European Commission and EFTA have made funding available for a Project ‘Measurement Uncertainties under M/534 and M/535’.
The objective of this project is to assess (with Round Robin tests) the inter-laboratory reproducibility, repeatability and variability required by, and for parameters to be used for, the application of labelling delegated regulations and ecodesign regulations of space and water heaters, by evaluation of the standards implementing those regulations.
The present call is therefore addressed to laboratories with a proven track record in testing all appliances under M/534 (water heaters) and M/535 (Space heaters) on all relevant parameters under these mandates.
Interested laboratories are expected to form a consortium and send in a single tender/offer on behalf of this consortium, covering all technologies.
The relevant sections of the Project plan and the contractual details are attached in annex of the present information. The project plan describes in detail what is expected from the consortium, the work plan and milestones and the expertise required for the execution of the task(s). The consortium selected will sign an agreement with NEN.
Tenders can be sent by e-mail to Mr Edward Zomers , at the latest at Wednesday 30th of August. The requirements for respondents and the response are described in the call for tender. Applications received after the deadline will not be taken into consideration.
