The European Construction Products Directive (89-106-EC) stipulates that in order to be sold on the market, construction products must satisfy "essential requirements". The applicable standards specify the nature of these requirements for each product. The systems of attestation of conformity differs from one product to the next. For a number of products, it has been anticipated that a third-party organisation would conduct industrial production system inspections, with these organisations needing to be "notified" by State authorities.
LCPC is a notified body to perform such inspections in the field of aggregates.
