For an external reader the requirements to obtain certification for a product or service are not always easy to understand.

To facilitate comprehension and access to these requirements, the CSTB now offers Internet users Factsheets.

The aim of these Factsheets is to:

  • explain the added value of the product and service certifications offered by the CSTB;
  • provide specifiers with the factsheets they wish to include in their calls for tenders (downloadable in PDF format).

Factsheets are available on the home page of each certification application. Each sheet offers a one-page overview of:

  • Certified characteristics;
  • Assessment methods for acceptance and follow-up (audits, testing, frequency, etc.).
