AENOR's N mark for switchgear and small electrical equipment certifies compliance with electrical safety standards
AENOR product certification adds value to products, which differentiates them from the rest and makes them more likely to be chosen by consumers. It also enables products to be introduced to multiple markets outside Spain that have demanding requirements.
To certify these products, AENOR is accredited by the National Accreditation Entity (ENAC) with accreditation no. 1/C-PR275 (you can check the valid scope accredited on the website of ENAC).
Once the N Mark has been obtained, being a signatory of CENELEC Certification Agreement (CCA), AENOR can issue a Notification of Test Results (NTR) for the purpose of acquiring the marks of other signatory bodies, such as IMQ (Italy), VDE (Germany), LCIE (France), etc.
The N Mark is a symbol of the product quality and safety, backed by an independent third-party leader in certification. The AENOR N Mark is recognised by public and private customers, facilitating the sales of thousands of certified products around the world.
The N certification is not mandatory; the manufacturer or distributor voluntarily submits their product to a full examination by independent organisms and specialists in order to objectively ensure that it complies with the established quality and safety requirements. The N Mark is therefore more demanding than the basic and mandatory CE Mark requirements.
AENOR certification is the benchmark for these products within the national market.
Products awarded this mark are subjected to various assessments and controls in order to check they comply with the corresponding standards and the particular certification system developed by AENOR for each product.
Any product bearing the N Mark guarantees that it is safe for the public. Muchos clientes y mercados de todo el mundo ya confían en nuestra Marca
