All clay pavers that leave Bylandt’s factories comply with the European standard NEN–EN 1344 and bear the CE marking as a matter of course. However this is not sufficient for Bylandt, and we therefore work to a higher standard. We satisfy the supplementary Dutch National Assessment Guidelines – KOMO BRL 2360 – which have applied since 2005.
National Assessment guideline 2360
The Dutch National Assessment Guideline BRL 2360 for clay pavers has been approved by the College of Experts in Ceramic Products of the international certifying body KIWA and adopted by the Harmonisation Committee for Construction of the SBK (Foundation for quality in the construction industry in the Netherlands). Amongst other things, the guideline contains assessment requirements, procedures, requirements for certifying bodies and reporting obligations. The guideline follows the Dutch Manual for Certification under the Building Materials Decree guarantees the requirements of the Dutch government arising from the Soil Quality Decree.
All Bylandt clay pavers meet KOMO BRL 2360 requirements*. The KOMO certification signifies a higher level of quality than the European CE marking. The Assessment Guideline imposes additional requirements on top of the CE marking on, amongst other things, the dimensional distribution, unevenness, resistance to wear, water absorption, minimum dimensions, shape and non-conformities. Because KOMO certificates follow the Dutch Manual for Certification under the Building Materials Decree, they are officially recognised by Dutch government
