Currently, the N Mark for metal framing covers certification for the following types of framing:

  • Channels
  • Posts
  • Wall angle
  • “U” profiles
  • Master
  • Continuous ceiling profiles
  • Sierra-Ceiling Profiles

AENOR, and as a conformity assessment entity, is a leader in product certification. With over 100,000 certified references throughout more than 40 countries, the AENOR N Mark is among the top 5 product quality marks in the world. 

The AENOR N Mark is a voluntary mark that allows the company to demonstrate that their product meets certain provisions established 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.

This way, the AENOR N Mark can provide the following advantages:

The manufacturer

  • Affords greater knowledge of the product via the exhaustive control set forth by the N​ Mark
  • 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.
  • There are commercial grounds to introduce the product into new markets and facilitate access to works

Business providers and monitoring agents

  • Guarantees that the product has undergone prior verification to determine its compliance with minimum requirements
  • Products with long-lasting confidence. Product assessments are ongoing, guaranteeing compliance with the initial certified provisions
​ ​

Public Administrations

  • ​​Guarantees that the prescribed product will comply with the applicable statutory requirements
  • Transparency of the AENOR certification process.
  • Balance among the interest parties regarding decisions on the certified products

The end user

  • Confidence from knowing that the product has undergone prior verification
  • Credibility as the product is assessed by a recognised certification company​​ ​

Certification for metal framing used to fit drywalls consists in two clearly distinguished 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 to verify that it meets the requirements of the certification document. During each visit, samples will be taken of the models 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.

Once all of the results have been received, the Technical and Business Association of Gypsum (ATEDY), acting as Secretary of the Technical Certification Committee, presents a confidential report of all the activities, which is then evaluated by the Committee.

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 stage, AENOR's Services make twice-yearly visits to the manufacturing facilities to verify that the criteria and requirements established in the certification regulations are being applied and maintained. During these visits, samples of the certified models will be taken for testing in the accredited laboratory.

The Secretary prepares and presents a twice-yearly report of all the activities carried out to the Committee, which decides, based on the obtained results, whether to maintain the certificate or to require that additional activities be carried out.

After completing the certification process, the organisation obtains:

  • AENOR product certificate
  • A licence to use AENOR's Mark of a certified product, in accordance with the provisions of AENOR regulations
