Certification of ETICS implementors
In cooperation with the Building Insulation Guild (www.czb.cz), the Technical and Test Institute for Construction Prague(TZÚS Praha, s.p.) provides certification of the professional competence of companies performing external building insulation using contact insulation systems.
The certification system creates the conditions to ensure that certificate holders carry out work throughout the implementation correctly.
The certification system is based on the following main principles:
- existing applicable technical specifications of implemented ETICS systems in accordance with legislation for placing products on the market, i.e., the European Technical Approval (ETA) (or Construction Technical Certificate (STO) for products not covered by ETAG 004);
- compliance of procedures with manufacturers’ installation instructions, ČSN 73 2901, and other standards and legal regulations;
- audits by independent auditors at construction sites;
- pre-announced and unannounced inspection visits of auditors at construction sites at any time during the term of the certificate, carried out at least once a year.
The course of certification, from the filing of an application by the implementation company to the issuing of the relevant certificate, is covered in Conditions for Granting Certificates.
