The AENOR N Mark for domestic appliances certifies conformity with applicable electrical safety standards
The AENOR product certification contributes an added value to products, distinguishing each product from the others and encouraging the customer to choose it. Certification also promotes introduction into multiple selective markets outside Spain.
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 subjects its product to a complete examination by independent organisations and specialists, with the goal of ensuring objectively that its product meets the established quality and safety requirements. Consequently, the N Mark requirements are more demanding than the essential and compulsory requirements of the CE Mark.
The AENOR certification is the benchmark for these products in the domestic market.
The products that have been granted this mark are subject to different assessments and controls to ensure their compliance with corresponding standards and with the specific certification system developed by AENOR for each product.

Everything is easier with the AENOR certification
Guarantees compliance with public and private requirements
The certification process consists primarily of:
An initial Inspection of production centres to ensure that they have the means and adequate controls for manufacture
Initial product testing in accredited laboratories according to applicable standards.
All products that hold the AENOR Mark undergo annual follow-ups, and the centres where the products are manufactured are inspected at least once a year.
Once it passes the certification process, the organisation obtains:
ENEC and ENEC+ Marks
ENEC and ENEC+ are common European electrical safety marks
International recognition of testing
Simplifies the acquisition of conformity marks from international certification entities
Notification of test results
Enables organisations to obtain conformity marks from European certification bodies
