CE marking obligation
As of 01.10.2002, CE marking is compulsory for the majority of geosynthetics The CE marking certifies the conformity of a product with the respective European (EU) standards for specific applications and functions (Separation, Filtration, Reinforcement, Protection and Drainage). All necessary measures to implement the CE marking obligation were implemented by Naue on 1 October 2002.
Application standards for geomembranes were published in 2004 and 2005. Thus, as of September 2006 and January/February 2007, CE marking is mandatory for the sealing function according to the corresponding standards. This applies, for example, to geomembranes and geosynthetic clay liners. On 14 February 2006, Naue received the CE mark for Bentofix® geosynthetic clay liners and Carbofol® geomembranes.
By fulfilling the requirements of the CE marking, index values are presented in a comparable form for all products. Above all, requirements for the service life of geosynthetics and their verification are regulated.
We implement the requirements according to the CE marking at all production sites. This is monitored externally by a Notified Body.
