WELCOME IN THE TEST INSTITUTE HOCH
In Germany and the European Union, strict regulations apply to all construction materials: before a construction product may commercially be marketed or installed in a public building, it is required to have its inflammability checked and classified by an accredited and certified institution.
The test institute Hoch is accredited according to DIN EN 17025 and notified as a testing institute. The corresponding certificates are available here:
- Accreditation for the auditing of the following areas: examinations of the fire behavior of roofings, flooring materials and floor coatings (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005)
- Decision regarding the notification according to regulation (EU) No. 305/2011 (EU-Construction Products Regulation)
- Notification on the recognition as an inspection and certification agency according to the state building regulations
- Notification on the recognition as an inspection agency according to the Building Products Act
