Quality certificates and Type Approval certificates are an impartial certification service providing independent third-party evaluation attesting to a product’s conformity with industry accepted standards and specifications. A Type Approval certification verifies that an appropriate production quality system is in place. Gutteling has received more than 32 Quality and Type Approval certificates.
Gutteling and van Rooyen currently maintain a safety and quality management system. Our management system combines both ISO 9001 and the pressure equipment directive code for pressure maintained equipment (PED2014/68/EU).
The system’s certificates are validated yearly by DNV to ensure compliance with the International Standards Organization and PED. Gutteling Composite Hoses are fully qualified by several classification societies such as; Lloyd’s Register, DNV, Bureau Veritas, American Bureau of Shipping, Nippon Kai Kijokai and others.
International standards such as IMO IBC & IGC code, EN 13765/13766, USCG rules and EN 1474-II have been taken into an extended test program, which was used to qualify the different type of composite hoses for all kind of transfer operations.
