European Standards

What is AENOR UNE?

AENOR is the Spanish Association for Standardization and Certification, which is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1986. The main objective of AENOR is to develop and promote the use of standards in order to contribute to the improvement of quality, safety, and competitiveness both at a national and international level.

AENOR is responsible for developing and publishing technical standards for various industries including construction, manufacturing, and services. Additionally, AENOR is responsible for auditing and certifying products, services, and management systems in compliance with these standards.

Additionally, AENOR’s certification process provides an independent verification of compliance, which can help to increase the credibility and competitiveness of the products in the EU market.


AENOR UNE-EN Standards

There are specific AENOR standards that are recognized by the EU as being compliant with these directives and regulations. For example, the AENOR UNE-EN standards are European standards that have been adopted by the Spanish Standardization Body and cover a wide range of sectors and products.

By complying with these AENOR standards, manufacturers can demonstrate that their products meet the essential requirements for safety, health, and environmental protection required by the EU.
