Certification procedure


Application for certification


Pre-audit (optional)


Initial inspection

Checking whether the existing system of FCP is suitable for manufacturing the component in conformity with the standard.



Issue of the certificate

After successful inspection.



Ongoing monitoring

Monitoring of the further function of the FCP. Monitoring according to EN 1090 is carried out either with an audit in the company or with a monitoring questionnaire. This depends on the design class (EXC 1-EXC 4) and the associated monitoring interval.


The essential prerequisite for the certification and monitoring of factory production control is a quality assurance system according to DIN EN 1090-1 that you have set up, that functions and that is documented in writing.

The scope of the requirements for factory production control depends on the execution class (EXC) in which you manufacture components and kits.

The application standards for steel structures according to DIN EN 1090-2 and for aluminium structures according to DIN EN 1090-3 define four design classes EXC 1 (components mainly subjected to static loads, low failure consequences) to EXC 4 (components with extreme failure consequences for people and the environment). The requirements for the qualification of the employees and for the technical equipment of the manufacturer increase from EXC 1 to EXC 4.
