European Standards EN 14450, EN 1143-1 and EN 1143-2
All certified safes must be tested to the EN1143-1 (non deposit) or EN1143-2 (Deposit) standards as they are manufactured. Once a test certificate has been issued for a particular product only very minor alterations may be permissible such as a lock upgrade or an alarm cable track.
Any physical alterations to the unit such as the addition of a suction tube, capsule deposit, rotary deposit drum or envelope slot will make the EN1143 certification void for insurance purposes.
The only safe certification valid in the E.U. is that which has been awarded by a body that has accreditation according to EN45011, which has now been updated to the new ISO/IEC 17065:2012 standard.
Genuine Marks Of ISO/IEC 17065 European Certification.
The only certification bodies who can issue valid European certification for these standards at present are:
|CNPP - France - Cert mark is A2P||www.cnpp.com|
|ECBS - Germany||www.ecb-s.com|
|ICIM - Italy||www.icim.it|
|SBSC - Sweden||www.sbsc.se|
|VdS - Germany||www.vds.de|
Marks Often Mistaken for ISO/IEC 17065 European Certification.
|LPCB - a U.K. Testing & Certification Body not accredited according to ISO/IEC 17065 to certify safes.|
| The Association Of Insurance Surveyors "AIS Approved Safe" mark is NOT a certification mark.|
The AIS is an independent organisation of people working in the safe industry and risk market throughout the UK. The AIS produces a list of safes many of which were manufactured before European certification. The list's stated intent is to act as an aid to the UK insurance industry.
