Quality Regulations for Panels and Profiles

PPA-Europe has established Quality Regulations valid for panels and profiles, which are covered by the scopes of the following harmonized European standards (hENs):

  • EN 14509 – "Self-supporting double skin metal faced insulating panels – Factory made products – Specifications"
  • EN 14782 – "Self-supporting metal sheet for roofing, external cladding and internal lining", for self-supporting profiles
  • EN 1090-1 – "Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures - Part 1: Assessment and verification of constancy of performance for structural components", for load-bearing profiles.

For all standards mentioned, the last version published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) is the basis of these Quality Regulations.

It is the intention of these Quality Regulations to establish a quality assurance system for panels and profiles, which is mainly based on independent third party control.
