The N Mark for metal framing for fitting drywall certifies the quality of these products, in accordance with national and European standards
The N Mark for metal framing for fitting drywall helps the manufacturer to guarantee compliance with the minimum requirements of resistance and durability, which these products must have to ensure the proper installation of drywall.
Currently, the N Mark for metal framing covers certification for the following types of framing:
AENOR product certification for metal framing for fitting drywall facilitates on-site reception, which allows for reduced testing and verifications and thus facilitating the technical and documentary management on site.
Certification is the action carried out by an independent body, which manifests that an organisation, product, process or service meets the requirements defined in certain standards or technical specifications. AENOR marks prove this certification and constitute a distinguishing factor on the market, improving the image of products and services and building trust among customers and consumers:
The AENOR N certified product mark demonstrates compliance with certain standards. It is a symbol of product quality and safety, and is backed by an independent third party, AENOR, a leader in certification. The AENOR N Mark logo is recognised by public and private users, facilitating the sales of thousands of certified products around the world.
AENOR's N certified product marks are not mandatory; manufacturers can voluntarily submit their products to be fully assessed by independent agencies and specialists in order to objectively ensure that they comply with the quality and safety requirements set forth in the corresponding regulations. The AENOR N mark therefore supplements the CE mark for products covered by harmonised directives and regulations. AENOR N marks are of particular value to customers when the product at issue is not covered by a CE mark.
AENOR performs its own certification system in order to certify each product, which uses applicable standards, technical specifications, certification procedures and features.

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.

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.
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:
The CE MARK is a passport for building products
The CE mark provides
access to the European Economic Area for construction products
Environmental product declarations (EPD)
AENOR manages the GlobalEPD Programme of verification, in accordance with Standards ISO 14025 and EN 15804
