The essential condition for both, certification and surveillance of the factory production control is a quality assurance system pursuant to DIN EN 1090-1, which is implemented, operational and documented in written.

The scope of requirements of the factory production control is dependent on the execution class (EXC) you are manufacturing parts and assemblies.

Hereby, four execution classes EXC 1 (predominantly static loads, low consequences in the event of failure) to EXC 4 (parts with extreme consequences of for people and the environment in the event of failure) in the application standards for structural steel parts pursuant to DIN EN 1090-2 and for structural parts made of aluminium pursuant to DIN EN 1090-3. The requirements of the qualification of the employees and of the technical equipment are more severe from EXC 1 to EXC 4.
