Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

When manufacturing construction products made of steel or aluminium, certain quality requirements must be met.
In order to affix the CE marking required by the Construction Products Regulation and to be able to submit the associated declaration of performance, the manufacturing company must prove to a certification body that it is entitled to do so.


Who should I contact?
  • If you intend to have your company certified, you will find a list of the authorized certification bodies in the "Online Register EN 1090".
    Depending on whether you need a WPK certificate (for production) or a welding certificate (for construction site work), you will find the organizations where you can obtain the certificate under the sub-item "Certification Authority".
  • If you are looking for a company that manufactures construction products for you (WPK certificate) or is to weld them on the construction site (welding certificate), you will also find them in the "Online Register EN 1090".
    All companies that are certified according to EN 1090 are recorded in a database that is publicly accessible in accordance with an agreement between the certification bodies.
    You therefore have the option of finding a suitable operation via search masks.
    To do this, you must first select the desired certificate so that the mask opens. You can then search for specific establishments, or you will be shown all the establishments of a place or a selected radius.

    It is helpful for a better or faster search to know which execution class your component falls into, as the operation must be certified to match the component. A rough overview of the classification of components into classes and much more information can be found on the website of the ZDH-ZERT, "Guideline DIN EN 1090".
Which documents are required?

Since different documents are required from case to case, it is recommended to contact the relevant certification body in advance.

What are the fees?

Depending on the desired design class, the materials to be processed and the scope of certification, the fees vary.
The selected certification authority will be happy to make you an offer.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Companies whose approval according to DIN 18800 Part 7 has expired or is about to expire should strive for certification according to EN 1090 in good time, as the conversion requires some time.

Legal basis

Landesbauordnung für das Land Schleswig-Holstein (LBO).

Applications / forms

Application forms can be obtained from the responsible certification body.

What else should I know?

Approval in the area of DIN 18800 Part 7 Manufacturer qualification classes A-E (small and large proof of suitability) has no longer been possible since 2014, as the DIN standard has been transferred to the European standard EN 1090. The last approvals according to DIN 18800 Part 7 expire in spring 2017 due to the 3-year validity.

In the future, the component (statics) may no longer be dimensioned in accordance with DIN 18800 Part 1, but must be carried out in accordance with EN 1993, the so-called Eurocodes.
