Accredited Certification And Legal Proof Of Standard For Safes

Accredited Certification And Legal Proof Of Standard For Safes

EU regulation 765/2008 created the system that provides the legal basis of accreditation for the certification of safes to European standards (ISO/IEC 17065). A system backed by regular auditing and market surveillance. Accredited European Certification is verifiable assurance that a safe, fire safe, data cabinet or strongroom has been tested and certified under European law. This is proof of standard for insurance, GDPR and litigation purposes.

A reputable safe supplier will always provide accredited certification documents for a certified unit. The safe, fire safe, data cabinet or strongroom will have at least one certification plate which can be located on the inside of the door. This will always be a stamped metal plate, never a sticker.

An accredited certification plate will clearly state the certification standard, the name of the accredited certification body and an ISO/IEC17065 accreditation. The ISO/IEC17065 accreditation will also be noted on certification documents. All plates clearly state the European certification standard and the name of the accredited certification body, ECB-S, VDS, CNPP or SBSC. accreditation. This is not only proof of standard for litigation purposes but the only basis for recommended insurance rates in Europe.
