The association of product certification bodies in Europe active in the construction sector



Eurocer-Building is an association of individual, independent, high-qualified, multiform product certification bodies. The product certificates of the members support architects and contractors in realizing (quality in) buildings and civil works in the EEA. Voluntary Product Certificates ensure actors in the construction industry, that those products are reliable. Voluntary Product Certificates make the building process – from approval of building products on the building site, up to the incorporation of the products in building and civil works – cost-effective and efficient. 

With a strong association EB members are positioned as individual body and as a collective of bodies in Europe
