A document issued by the notified body carrying out an EC type-examination in which it certifies that the product example under consideration complies with the provisions applicable to it.
The certificate shall be forwarded to the applicant, i.e. manufacturer or his authorised representative established in the Community, and will state the conclusions of the examination, indicate any conditions to which its issue may be subject, and be accompanied by the descriptions and drawings necessary for identification of the approved example.

Directives that ELSPECTA-AB can issue Type - Examination Certificate:

Directive 2014/33/EU - lifts and safety components for lifts
Directive 2014/33/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to lifts and safety components for lifts
This Directive applies to lifts permanently serving buildings and constructions and the safety components used in such lifts. Manufacturers of safety components and the installer of the lift are under an obligation to assess the hazards in order to identify all those which apply to their products; they must then design and construct them taking account of the assessment. The manufacturer must provide technical documentation for the lift and its components. Safe products must bear the CE conformity marking and freely circulate on the EU market while unsafe products shall be prevented from being imported.
The Directive establishes a conformity assessment procedure for the manufacturers and rules for the national authorities in charge with the supervision of the market access of lifts and components.

ISO 22241-2 Diesel Engines - NOx Reducing Agent AUS 32 - Part 2: Test Methods

Our Laboratory provides testing and compliance services within the scope of ISO 22241-2 standard. Developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), this part of the ISO 22241 standard specifies test methods for determining the quality and chemical properties of the NOx reducing agent AUS 22241 (aqueous urea solution) as specified in ISO 1-32.

The sampling method specified in this annex applies to each AUS 32 sample throughout the supply chain after the vehicles are shipped from the manufacturer's site to AUS 32 containers.

The limits for AUS 22241 quality characteristics specified in ISO 1-32 are representative analytical results that can only be obtained if the sample is protected from any contamination prior to analysis. For this reason, suitable bottles that do not contaminate the sample especially in terms of trace elements should be used for sampling.

Possible Contaminants

During the sampling process, foreign matter may contaminate the sample. Under realistic conditions, the following sources of contamination would pose a great danger:

  • Residues of process aids used for the production of sample bottles;
  • Contaminants accumulated in empty bottles during their empty storage;
  • Airborne contaminants during sampling, ie dust or any foreign matter in the environment;
  • Residues of cleaning agents that have also been used to clean sampling equipment and bottles;
  • Fuel.

For this test method ISO 22241-2, 1000 ml wide neck bottles will be used. Suitable materials for these bottles are high density polyethylene (HDPE), high density polypropylene (HDPP), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and perfluoroalkoxy alkane (PFA). Before first use with the AUS 32, the bottles should be cleaned and finally rinsed with deionized water followed by the AUS 32.

The locked wide neck bottle should be opened and placed on a clean surface with the cap facing down. After the sampling tube has been rinsed, the bottle will be completely filled with AUS 32 from the container. The first fill will be discarded and the bottle immediately refilled with AUS 32 and tightly capped. The label must be affixed to the bottle. During the filling of the sample, utmost care should be taken not to allow dust or liquid contaminants to enter the bottle.

The filled bottle should reach the laboratory as soon as possible. During transport and storage, the sample should be kept at the lowest possible temperature, preferably between 0 °C and 15 °C. It is recommended that the analysis be done within three weeks to account for possible changes in ammonia content.

Among the services provided by our organization within the framework of material testing services, there are also ISO 22241-2 standard tests. Do not hesitate to contact our laboratory OY ELSPECTA-AB for your testing and certification requests.
