Day by Day more, manufacturers are calling for EN 10204:Type 3.2 certified steel or materials for safety-critical equipment and components. If you’re not sure what this means, this course will help you understand it.
EN 10204:2004 is a European standard for material certificates. Originally based on a German standard, today there are four types of certificates under EN 10204.
Type 3.2 certificates provide independent assurance of a material’s properties. It declares the products or material supplied by a manufacturer meet the requirements of the buyer’s order.
While type 3.2 material certificates have traditionally been required in the pressure equipment manufacturing sector in Europe, other geographies and industries are recognizing the value of type 3.2 certification. Many oil and gas equipment end users, for example, are now requiring type 3.2 certification of material so they can be sure of the material’s integrity.
Type 3.2 certification helps give companies a new level of confidence as they cope with complex global supply chains.
