A product tested and certified once should be recognised for its quality and performance across Europe, and the Heat Pump KEYMARK recognition in the Netherlands represents an additional step in the accomplishment of this goal.
Following comprehensive and constructive discussions between the Heat Pump KEYMARK, Bureau Controle en Registratie Gelijkwaardigheid (BCRG) and the Dutch Heat Pump Association (Vereniging Warmtepompen - formerly DHPA), it is now possible for Heat Pump KEYMARK certified product manufacturers to use their valid KEYMARK Certificates as a solid reference to apply for compliance to mandatory testing conditions in the Netherlands according to NTA 8800 (the Dutch method for determining the Energy Performance of Buildings).
Heat Pump KEYMARK certificate holders’ main benefits when entering Dutch market include:
- Reduction of time to market
- Reduction of testing and certification costs
