Choosing KOMO Quality = choosing certainty. Worldwide.
KOMO guarantees that the quality has been objectively tested by independent experts. On the basis of predetermined, generally accepted requirements.
KOMO Quality Mark: international guarantee since 1962
Every product for a building or infrastructure sector that is provided under KOMO certification meets very strict quality requirements*. Only when accredited, independent certification institutions repeatedly confirm that it meets all requirements is such a product permitted to carry the KOMO Quality Mark.
The stringent, internationally valid and maintained rules concerning KOMO certification schemes determine the added value of products** that come with a KOMO Quality Mark. That’s why KOMO quality always provides certainty. Worldwide.
(*) Requirements for KOMO certification are drawn up in advance by special Committees of Experts, in which all interested parties are represented. The requirements are described in an Assessment Directive (Dutch: BRL). (**) Besides the benefits for products (all building and infrastructure products, raw and auxiliary materials), KOMO certification also creates additional value for building processes, building systems, realisation processes, services, management systems and innovations in the building and infrastructure sector.
