EPAQ Quality Regulations for Panels and Profiles

PPA-Europe has established Quality Regulations for sandwich panels and cold-formed metal 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 structural profiles.

For the standards mentioned above, the latest version cited in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) applies.

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