N Mark for adhesives for ceramic tiles

The AENOR N Mark is a voluntary marking that allows a company to demonstrate that its product complies with specific provisions compiled in a UNE, EN or ISO standard or in a technical specification. This demonstration of compliance during the manufacturing and testing of the final products, based on a rigorous control performed by AENOR, will allow licensees of the Mark to put their products on the market with a high standard of quality, instilling confidence in the users of these certified products.

  • Products that do not comply with relevant standards or regulations can be detected before they enter the market
  • Lowers the production costs since there is greater control during the manufacturing process.

The certification for ceramic adhesives consists of two separate phases. In the first phase, certification applicants must implement a documentation system based on ISO 9001. At the same time, they must control the products and measurement equipment as set out in the certification regulations.

Subsequently, AENOR's Technical Services visit the production facility in order to verify compliance with the requirements of the certification document. Samples are taken from the models that are to be certified and then sent to one of the laboratories accredited by the Spanish National Accreditation Body (ENAC), which collaborates with AENOR in the certification process.

After receiving the test results, AENOR assesses the activities and issues a decision.

If the decision is satisfactory, AENOR will be recommended to grant the certificate. Alternatively, the applicant will be informed of the reasons for refusal and specific complementary activities that need to be carried out.

After issuance of the certificate, the company progresses to the certification monitoring phase. During this phase, AENOR's services make annual visits to the production facilities to confirm that the criteria and requirements established in the certification regulations are being applied and maintained. During the visit, samples of the certified models are taken on a rotational basis for testing in an accredited laboratory.

AENOR re-evaluates the organisation's activities every year and, based on the obtained results, decides either to maintain the certificate or whether additional activities need to be carried out by the company.
