Our Mission

EUCEB's Mission

EUCEB is a voluntary initiative by the mineral wool industry. It is an independent certification authority that guarantees products meeting the exoneration criteria for classification as a carcinogen (Note Q) of the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council.
The mission of EUCEB is that all the fibers produced by its members comply with note Q of Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council. To ensure that fibers comply with the exoneration criteria, all tests and supervision procedures are carried out by independent experts and qualified institutions.

EUCEB vision is to secure stakeholder’s confidence in the safety of mineral wool products that are made of fibres not classified under the European regulations.

 

EUCEB's Objectives

EUCEB objective is to provide independent verification that manufactured fibres have a chemical composition within the ranges of exonerated reference fibres that have been tested in accordance to the European protocols to be in conformity with Note Q of the Regulation on the Classification, the Labelling and the Packaging of dangerous substances (CLP Regulation, Regulation (EC) n° 1272/2008).
