The N Mark for luminaires, associated electrical/electronic equipment, and capacitors for AC motors, guarantees the high-quality standard of these products, mainly for electrical safety.
The AENOR product certification provides added value to products, helping them to stand out from the rest, improving consumer selection, and facilitating their placement on multiple demanding markets outside Spain.
To certify these products AENOR is accredited by the Spanish National Accreditation Body (ENAC); its requirements are in accordance with those of other European quality marks and other certifications at a global level.
Once the N Mark has been acquired, as a signatory of the CENELEC Certification Agreement (CCA), AENOR can issue the Notification of Test Results (NTR) to acquire the marks of other signatory bodies such as the IMQ (Italy), VDE (Germany), LCIE (France), etc.
The N Mark is also related to CB certifications (under IEC standards).
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; manufacturers subject their product to a complete examination by independent bodies and specialists in order to obtain an objective guarantee that their product meets the established quality and safety requirements: compliance with corresponding standards and periodic inspections of production centres.
The N Mark guarantees compliance with the CE marking, in this case, of electrical safety.
The N certification is a benchmark for products and companies that have earned a good reputation.
Before obtaining the N Mark, products undergo assessments and controls to verify their compliance with the corresponding standards and the specific certification system developed by AENOR for each product.
The following products are covered:
Any product bearing the N Mark guarantees that it is safe for the public. Many customers and markets all over the world already put their trust in our Mark.
Everything is easier with the AENOR certification
Guarantees compliance with public and private requirements
The certification process consists primarily of:
Testing the standards applied to each product in our laboratories
Inspecting the production plants once a year to check the manufacturing controls in place.
Once it passes the certification process, the organisation obtains:
ENEC and ENEC+ are common European electrical safety marks
International recognition of testing
Simplifies the acquisition of conformity marks from international certification entities
Enables organisations to obtain conformity marks from European certification bodies
