News update for CE marking of Sealants – September 2017

News update for CE marking of Sealants – September 2017

The New 2017 version of the EN 15651-1-4 will not be approved for use in 2017 as it has been rejected by the EC Services and will not be cited in the OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union).

Members of the CEN TC349 will now be amending the 2017 version which will move straight to a new 2018 approved version.

As the only Notified Body Test Laboratory for Sealant Testing in the UK we will be continuing to test sealants to the 2012 version of the EN 15651 1-4 until the new 2018 version is approved.

4ward Testing’s wide range of experience  means we are also able to offer testing of sealants to BS EN 15651 1-4:2012, BS 5212-3:1990, BS EN 14188-2, BS EN 14187-9:2006 as well as the Federal Specification SS- S-200E, and for adhesives to the BS EN 12004:2007 +A1 2012 series of tests. As a Notified Body (2538) and UKAS Accredited Laboratory (0307) we can be your trusted testing laboratory.
