About PIV CERT

PIV CERT is a Product certification body for construction products. PIV offers a suitable certification programme for every type of lock or hardware. Burglar resistance certification can be arranged for windows, doors and closures.

The principles pertaining to the structure and maintenance of a product certification body are governed in standard DIN EN ISO/IEC 17065 . As an accredited certification body, PIV must therefore undergo regular inspections by the German Accreditation Body (DAkkS).

A test performed by PIV in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 enables manufacturers to obtain certification of their construction product on a voluntary basis. Certification always includes an initial production site inspection as well as periodic follow-up inspections.
