The Acoustic Testing Body for sanitary taps and building valves at MPA NRW is specialized in tests according to DIN EN ISO 3822-1 to -4.
These tests serve as a basis for the “allgemeines bauaufsichtliches Prüfzeugnis (abP)” including P-IX-Sign, which is required by building regulations in DIN 4109-1 for multistorey buildings, hospitals or hotels. The MPA NRW Acoustic Testing Body is approved by “Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt)” for issuing abPs. Furthermore the determined noise characteristics as well as mechanical and hydraulic tests are part of the certification of sanitary taps and building valves by DVGW CERT GmbH.
The employees are part of the workgroup abP („Arbeitskreis der Prüfstellen für die Erteilung allgemeiner bauaufsichtlicher Prüfzeugnisse für Armaturen und Geräte der Wasserinstallation“) and standard committees and therefore involved in the design and development of test standards and product standards on national, European and international level.
Moreover single or special tests (preliminary examinations) can be performed following customer request.
The responsible employees will help you to determine the necessary scope of testing along with the requirements and will clarify all details.
