  • What are the benefits of EN 10204 certification?

    Full material verification

    EN 10204 certification ensures metal materials are verified and of expected quality, guaranteeing the validity of the manufacturer and the products supplied to the buyer. It gives you a clear sight of the history of the material and means it can be used with confidence.

    Increase customer confidence

    Customers have more confidence in your products once they have been certified as safe. This places your business as a brand to be trusted, encouraging new business and the expansion of existing customer relationships.

    Improve productivity

    Once you have achieved certification your organisation is in a better place to streamline productivity and augment existing resource procurement processes. In turn, this can foster innovation and growth, while also giving you a competitive edge in the marketplace.

  • Our services

    Our team of experts use objective evidence and provide a clear and traceable pathway back to the ladle chemical analysis and ensure its properties meet specification requirements.

    Using a three-stage inspection process our inspectors:

    • Check the material's identity and stamp piece/area to be used for mechanical testing.
    • Witness/review mechanical and metallurgical testing.
    • Review all documentation against the product specification, endorsing paperwork and inspecting/stamping material for release.

    While a set criteria is applied to ensure full traceability, we remain flexible to adapt to the specific needs of your organisation. Our inspectors work closely with each customer to develop plans that result in detailed and accurate results.
