PIV CERT certification association
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, curtain walls, grilles, shutters and gates.
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 (or another institute) 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.
