ECB•S Certification for burglary resistance products

(Pubbl. 21/11/2018)

The European Certification Body GmbH (ECB) is a neutral certification body performing testing, certification and quality control of security technology.
ECB•S Certification guarantees that the products bearing its mark have been tested to the most exacting standards covering burglary resistance, fire resistance and quality of the materials utilised.

ECB was set up by ESSA, International Security Association, the physical security industry’s leading international association founded in Germany in the 1960s, that has significantly influenced the standardisation of mechanical secure storage units, initially in Germany and then increasingly on the European and international market.

  • Accreditation according to ISO/IEC 17025 and ISO/IEC 17065
  • A quality management system
  • Auditing by an ECB expert
