EN 10204

EN 10204

EN 10204

We are in the midst of a debate about whether or not a material cert must actually state "EN 10204 3.1" if it complies in all other respects.  Some manufacturers do and some don't.  I can't seem to find that requirement in the spec.

RE: EN 10204

What "spec" do you mean? The EN 10204 itself? As far as I know the EN 10204 does not specify how a certificate acc. to EN 10204 must be named, but is describes the requirements if it is named acc. to EN 10204.

In general a supplier does not have to refer to EN 10204 in his certificate. But the only reason I can imagine why he does not is because he is not the origin manufacturer of the material itself.  

RE: EN 10204

Yes, I meant EN 10204 itself.  Thanks for your input.

RE: EN 10204

It doesnt clearly state in standards EN10204 or EN10168 that it must be included but using common sense I believe it is mandatory. It is a title of the document so I must be included on the certificate.

RE: EN 10204

using common sense I believe it is mandatory.

Never apply common sense to Codes or Standards, it will get you in trouble. EN 10204 is about the type of inspection document supplied. No where does it say to put "EN 10204" on anything. Doesn't say it, it is not required.

Makes sense for every material manufacturer to state it, doesn't cost them anything, but it is not required.
