Annual audit K23001/05 successfully completed

K23001/05 “For non-pressurized condensed aerosol generators and components used in fixed fire extinguishing systems”

KIA BRL K23001 Certificate AF-X Fireblocker

Certified

Last week, Aerospace Propulsion Products B.V (APP) and AF-X Systems successfully completed the annual audit K23001/05. This audit focuses on the management system and production of the AF-X Fireblocker.
 
This audit is performed after the certificate has been issued to determine whether the certified products continuously meet the requirements of the assessment directive K23001 / 05. In this audit, the correct implementation of the IQC scheme and procedures is examined.
 

Certification Requirements

The assessment is carried out in accordance with the assessment plan as described in the assessment guideline and certification scheme K23001/05.
 
This assessment guideline (BRL) K23001/05 contains all relevant requirements on the basis of which Kiwa issues and maintains the Kiwa Product Certificate for condensed aerosol generators and components. Product certification in this assessment guideline is based on IEC / ISO 17065.
 

International standards starting point for assessment guideline K23001/05

The Kiwa product certification scheme K23001 / 05 “for non-pressurized condensed aerosol generators and components used in fixed fire extinguishing systems” of October 1, 2018 is based on the following standards:
  • CEN / TR 15276-1 Fixed fire fighting systems – Condensed aerosol extinguishing systems – Part 1: Requirements and test methods for components;
  • ISO 15779 Condensed aerosol fire extinguishing systems – Requirements and test methods for components and system design, installation and maintenance – General requirements.
Additional product declarations for broader scope and applications achieved by the AF-X Fireblocker:
  • UL subject 2775, outline of investigation for fixed condensed aerosol extinguishing system units, November 5, 2008 o See 2.25;
  • EN 15276-1 Fixed fire fighting systems – Condensed aerosol extinguishing systems – Part 1: Requirements and test methods for components.

Objectives of this audit.

  1. the AF-X & APP management system, meet the requirements of the certification scheme;
  2. the management system has been implemented and is effective;
  3. the documented information of the management system is compliant;

Assessment Matrix

The initial evaluation (IE) consists of type testing (TT) of the product to determine whether it meets the relevant performance and product requirements. The matrix identifies the requirements that must be met to be eligible for certification. During the audit, it is also checked whether the quality system of AF-X & APP of the AF-X Fireblocker meets the requirements.
