This certification covers fixed or auxiliary kitchen furniture, work surfaces and dining counters, including those with glass used in their construction, under a single commercial mark, excluding auxiliary furniture
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.
N Mark for kitchen furniture certifies the quality management system outlined in Standard UNE 56875 V2
As a compliance assessor, AENOR is a leading product certification entity. With more than 100,000 certified references, the AENOR N Mark is present in over 40 countries and is among the top 5 product quality markings in the world.
The AENOR Mark is a voluntary mark that allows the company to demonstrate that its product complies with certain provisions compiled in a UNE, EN, ISO standard or 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 provides the following benefits:
Decision-makers and control agents
Society at large
The AENOR Mark is voluntary. Companies that want AENOR to certify their product must submit their application in accordance with the formats established by AENOR. This application must include information about the company and the characteristics of the products for which certification is sought.
Once the documentation is analysed by AENOR technicians, the conformity assessment is initiated to verify that the products comply with the applicable standards:
A visit is made to the production centre to carry out the following procedures:
The laboratory performs the tests established by the standard and sends its report to AENOR.
Using all the information on the activities performed, the Technical Certification Committee (independent body comprising all the interested parties: manufacturers, Administration, users, control entities and AENOR) suggests that AENOR grant the Mark or requests that certain non-conforming activities be repeated.
Once the Certificate is granted, monitoring begins to ensure the mark can be retained. Samples will be taken, and audits, inspections and tests will be performed on an annual basis. Results are assessed every year by the Technical Certification Committee, which will decide whether or not to maintain the Mark.
Once the audit process has been completed, the organisation obtains:
