The N Mark for gas facility equipment and accessories certifies that the equipment and accessories comply with applicable national and European standards
AENOR product certification is carried out by the Technical Certification Committee, where all parties involved in the gas installations sector are represented: users, manufacturers, installers, public administrations, laboratories, etc.
AENOR continually monitors compliance with applicable requirements.
The N Mark is a product quality and safety symbol that is supported by a third party. The AENOR N Mark logo is recognised by public and private customers, facilitating the sale of thousands of certified products around the world.
The N certification is not mandatory; the manufacturer subjects itself voluntarily to a complete examination of its product by independent entities and specialists, with the goal of objectively determining that the product meets the established quality and safety requirements. For certain equipment and accessories, the N Mark supplements the CE Mark, in accordance with Regulation Nº 305/2011 on construction products
