IMQ certification of the environmental sustainability of products

Alongside safety and quality, the environmental sustainability of products is another characteristic for which there is growing demand. This is because it is now widely known that there can be no development without sustainability. IMQ offers numerous certifications for manufacturing and service companies interested in providing the market with information about the environmental performance of their products and services.

IMQ ECO certification. Certification of product environmental claims. This is the mark that guarantees the truthfulness and consistency of claims made by manufacturers with regard to the environmental, ecological or energy characteristics of a product, such as information relating to the presence of recycled materials, VOC content, VOC emissions, compostability, degradability, energy efficiency, consumption, the recycling chain, noise emissions and so on.

Certicam certification. Certicam is the scheme that governs product certification in relation to recycled and/or recovered and/or by-product content on the basis of the values declared by the organisation that puts the products on the market.


The manufacturer’s production site must be equipped with suitable production, testing and control systems, personnel and equipment to ensure that the products it places on the market conform with the applicable standards at all times. This is established by carrying out an audit of the production site. For every model for which the manufacturer applies for a certification mark, IMQ conducts the type tests required by the applicable standards. The manufacturer undertakes to ensure that all certified products conform with the applicable standards at all times, and to conduct certain tests on 100% of production or on a statistical basis. IMQ ensures that these tests are performed on a regular basis and repeats them on a random selection of specimens picked from production. Attraverso visite in azienda, i valutatori analizzano la capacità delle organizzazioni di pianificare e gestire i processi di business aziendali. Management system certification is the endorsement enjoyed by organisations that have chosen to equip themselves with efficient management systems and suitable skills and structures, aimed at continuous improvement. And the higher the prestige of the awarding body, the higher the value of the guarantee. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, our laboratories have full capability to put products through all the checks required by the major European directives and international standards. The certifications issued by IMQ are synonymous with trust. They guarantee safety, performance, efficiency and quality standards. More than 10,000 companies have turned to IMQ to certify their products and stand out on the market. Notified body for the main EU directives, IMQ offers tests and CE certifications to assess the conformity of the products to the requirements required to be marketed on the European market. Inspections and audits validate the conformity of electrical installations, equipment, supplies and services with the applicable technical and legislative specifications. IMQ certification marks add value and enhance brand image by distinguishing products made by manufacturers that have invested properly in safety and quality. IMQ certification marks are a visible guarantee, which carry weight in tender procedures, that before its release, the product in question underwent comprehensive testing by an authorised body to verify its compliance with regulatory requirements. The safety marks issued by IMQ are an important instrument that helps manufacturers protect themselves against liability for damage caused by defective products. Products certified by IMQ benefit from facilitated procedures with other European and international certification bodies and therefore enjoy an advantage in relation to export markets.
