CE marking of the heart in rainwater management

Mosbaek A/S may now CE-mark its CEV flow regulators

For years, Mosbaek A/S has been working to document its products' performance, dependability and quality. This has now culminated in the acquisition of an ETA, based on previous efforts involving the European Technology Verification programme which now allow CEV flow regulators to be CE marked.

In an increasingly chaotic market where performance is primarily based on suppliers' own statements, the CE marking of CEV flow regulators enables customers to specify a product with a documented performance.

For more than 50 years, Mosbaek has been working on flow regulators designed for situations requiring rainwater management to protect and ensure the reliability of the sewer system. In recent years, customers from all over the world are increasingly interested in products with documented performance and quality. The flow regulator constitutes the heart of any sewer system planning and, if it does not perform as specified, the entire system will fail. Most schemes build on standardising the production process, not on products' capability. The creation of the European Environmental Technology Verification scheme has made it possible to document performance and it applies throughout the EU and potentially all over the world.

In 2015, after a thorough testing process, Mosbaek received the European Environmental Technology Verification of its CEV flow regulators. In 2018, Mosbaek decided to take the next step towards an ETA. An ETA makes it possible at European Union level to technically specify a CEV flow regulator's performance for those features that are relevant for the intended use. In addition, the ETA forms the basis for the subsequent CE marking in 2019.

ETA Danmark A/S has guided Mosbaek A/S through the rigorous process, from European Environmental Technology Verification, to ETA and now CE marking.

ETV facts

The European Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is a procedure for ground-breaking technologies which find it difficult to document their environmental added value by other means. The verification procedure permits an independent determination and validation of a manufacturer's assertion on the output and the environmental benefits of its technology. The information from the verification procedure are publicly available and can be used to compare performance-related parameters and thus become an incredibly useful tool in the dialogue with third parties about the justification of the technology.

Facts about ETA

A European Technical Assessment (ETA) provides reliable third-party documentation for a construction product's essential performance characteristics, and an ETA makes it possible, in a technical manner that applies throughout the EU, to describe the construction product's performance concerning the features that are relevant for the intended use. An ETA precedes the possibility of qualifying for CE marking a product wherever standards do not exist, as is the case with flow regulators.

Facts about CEV flow regulators

A CEV flow regulator is positioned after a stormwater basin and makes sure to only discharge the volume of rainwater which the sewer system can handle. Unlike other flow control methods, the flow regulator has no moving or electrical components and a strikingly bigger orifice opening, and a unique design. The overall effect of these features is to minimise the risk of clogging and make it possible to keep operating and maintenance costs in check. The simple flow regulator is also flexible, which future-proofs the installation.

Facts about Mosbaek A/S

Jørgen Mosbæk Johannessen was the original inventor of the flow regulator. This patented invention has formed the basis for ongoing development and optimisation, and Mosbaek A/S has the widest product portfolio and more than 27,000 installations around the world.
