„In order to ensure the safety of construction works a strict system of assessment and verification of constancy of performance is prescribed for cement according to EN 197-1. This includes factory production control and testing of samples by the manufacturer. Furthermore a notified certification body has to be involved, certifying the cement on the basis of an assessment of the performance of the cement, inspections of the manufacturing plant, continuing surveillance, assessment and evaluation of factory production control as well as regular audit testing of samples. We as a notified certification body determine i.a. the compressive strength of cement on more than 4000 mortar specimen each year. For this purpose we have used for decades CEN-Standard Sand produced by Normensand GmbH. Due to the high constancy of the product quality we recommend to our customers without any restrictions the use of this Standard sand.“
