EWCL5 – Certification for the Middle East market

Warringtonfire offers UKAS accredited certification from its Warrington office and is able to provide certification schemes for products and personnel.

The EWCL5 scheme was developed specifically for the Middle East and ensures that products tested and assessed are manufactured on a consistent basis and are traceable once supplied to site. The scheme is available for a range of passive fire protection products.

The EWCL5 scheme gives confidence to specifiers, enforcement authorities and building owners and occupiers in the Middle East that products provided by manufacturers are of the same specification as successfully tested/assessed.

The EWCL5 scheme requires manufacturers to produce products/systems to a successfully tested construction, the manufacture of which is regularly audited to ensure consistency of production. The records of manufacture are kept, and these are related to labels for each product available solely from Warringtonfire certification. Each label carries a unique number which is referenced back to the manufactured product enabling full traceability from the site back to the manufacturer's records.

Why EWCL5?

The scope of the certification is based upon the tested and assessed construction and enables the specifier or enforcement authority to check the suitability of a product for the intended end-use application.

The full product approval process document containing the rules and procedures for the scheme can be requested by emailing ewcl@warringtonfire.com
