From Asia to the United States, passing through Europe and the Middle East, every certification increases the value of our collections and allows us to make inroads into new markets.
CE marking is mandatory for all construction products which fall within the scope laid out by Regulation (EU) 305/2011, the CPR, and certifies that all our collections meet the safety requirements laid out by the EU, a well as the essential minimum requirements provided for in the regulation.
We meet the requirements for UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking, which certifies the safety of products placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales), demonstrating their compliance with the technical regulations in force in the country.
UKCA is Britain’s product marking introduced in 2021 to replace CE marking following Brexit.
China Compulsory Certification is the certification required for selling porcelain stoneware tiles throughout the Chinese market. Introduced in 2002, CCC certification applies to products both imported to and produced locally for sale in the country’s market.
A large proportion of our collections guarantee health and safety by meeting CCC product class A, relating to the emission of radiation, which is mandatory for installation of tiles in certain public environments such as hospitals, nurseries and public structures.
Over 100 Marazzi collections meet UPEC requirements, the French technical quality mark issued by the CSTB institute. Products with this mark comply with regulation NF EN 14411 and meet the resistance to foot traffic wear (U), mechanical resistance to movement of fixed and mobile objects (P), presence of water (E) and chemical substances (C) in accordance with their intended use, guaranteeing the highest levels of safety.
Some of the ranges have also obtained QB-UPEC F+ certification for raised paving installation on pedestals.
SONCAP is a conformity assessment programme for products exported to Nigeria. SON, the Nigerian Standards Organisation, has implemented a series of guidelines to regulate exports to Nigeria applied through SONCAP (SON Conformity Assessment Programme). The assessment programme includes requirements relating to the documentation which must be provided with the products, as well as physical inspection of goods before shipping.
SASO-ISO 13006 is the standard implemented by SASO (Saudi Arabian Standards Organization) for the export of tiles to Saudi Arabia.
The Saudi Quality Mark (SQM) is the mark granted to products which meet Saudi quality standards.
We are registered with Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Ceramics Industrialists’ Association) as qualified under the GPP (Good Phytosanitary Practices) programme for the control and shipment of ceramic tiles destined for the USA, guaranteeing the absence of biological contaminants in the material, packaging and containers in which they are transported.
Similar measures are also adopted for Australia and New Zealand.
NSF/ANSI 51 certification is issued by the American National Standard for Food Equipment – the independent organisation which certifies products for the food area in private and commercial catering – in confirmation of the quality and composition of the raw materials used to produce the large porcelain stoneware slabs.
NSF establishes the requirements a product must fulfil to ensure that it does not shed hazardous or toxic substances – such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury and lead – into foods, and is easy to sanitise and maintain.
What’s more, the NSF/ANSI 51 certification marks guarantee that production formulae constantly comply with the specifications, since the certifying body may perform audits at any time without notice.
