Flexible Scope


New DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018-03 (Flexible: Cat. I)
... to meet your testing requirements with the highest quality.

Already since December 2019 the PIV test laboratory has successfully passed the changeover to the requirements of the new ISO/IEC 17025:2018. With the confirmed flexible accreditation of category 1, different standards and standards levels may be used or guidelines may be applied flexibly, depending on the testing area.


"Flexible": Cat.I marking in the accreditation annex vs.

This category allows the test laboratory - without prior approval of the DAkkS - to freely select standardized or equivalent test methods (e.g. analogous national standards / guidelines).


"CE marking" - only with accredited tests

Based on the accreditation as Notified Body "NB 1309" the PIV is notified and can offer testing services according to system 3 for testing of construction products as well as certification according to system 1 for assessment and verification of constancy of performance within the scope of Regulation No. 305/2011 establishing harmonized conditions for the marketing of construction products.

Products which according to the technical requirements are covered by System 1 for assessment and verification of constancy of performance can be found in the annex to the accreditation certificate D-ZE-11024-01-00 in point 3.

Products which according to the technical requirements fall under the System 3 for the testing of construction products can be found in the annex to the accreditation certificate D-PL-11024-01-00 in point 4.

The Testing Institute Locks and Hardware [Prüfinstitut Schlösser und Beschläge Velbert] is allowed by the flexibility to apply different revisions of the harmonized technical specifications without prior approval of the DAkkS. The affiliated certification body may also apply new revisions of harmonized technical specifications in the certification programs.
The PIV has an authorization by the DIBt according to Article 46 paragraph 1 subparagraph 2 of the Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011, which allows tests outside the own accredited test facilities, e.g. at the manufacturer's site.

Further recognitions

Bilateral cooperation

The PIV supports its customers in accessing markets at home and abroad by acquiring further recognitions from e.g:

  • PIV CERT certificates
  • Bodies that award or demand quality labels, e.g. RAL Quality Mark, DIN CERTCO, Gütegemeinschaft Schlösser & Beschläge e.V., etc.

Bilateral cooperations extend the PIV service spectrum by coordinated tests and monitoring for these bodies.

This means a clear added value for PIV customers through:

  • facilitated market access
  • additional quality/seal of approval
  • Avoidance of double checks/monitoring
