Product certification

 

UPEC is a product certification issued by the French institution CSTB, verifying the technical suitability of the products related to their intended use.

CSTB UPEC - Cotto d'Este products

 

The CE mark is a safety certification required by the European Union with the intention of safeguarding health and safety.

DOP - Porcelain tile
DOP - Laminated porcelain 3,5 mm
DOP - Laminated porcelain 5,5 / 6,5 mm

 

The KEY-MARK and the Certiquality-UNI marks confirm that the certified products are compliant with the EU laws regarding ceramic tiles.

 

The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is a transparency tool that communicates the environmental performances of Cotto d'Este porcelain tile through a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). Cotto d'Este products have a type III specific EPD. This is certified by an independent third party according to EN 14025 and EN 15804 standards (applicable PCR). EPD certified products are required by the main construction certifying bodies such as LEED (international), BREEAM (England), HQE (France), and DGNB (Germany), as well as the legislative frameworks in Italy (requisites for sustainable public contracts).

 

GREENGUARD certifies products that guarantee the highest standards of air quality in indoor environments. All porcelain stoneware and Kerlite Cotto d'Este collections have obtained GREENGUARD GOLD certification, i.e. the UL standard with the strictest VOC emission limits, and are therefore able to ensure that they are as healthy as possible for the people who use and inhabit these environments. They can therefore be used in environments such as schools and health facilities, attended by sensitive individuals such as children and the elderly. GREENGUARD GOLD is a widely recognised certification required by sustainable building programmes and design and construction regulations around the world, such as LEED (international) and BREEAM (UK).

UL - Cotto d'Este products

 

It is a voluntary certification that gives additional value to Cotto d'Este products because they are manufactured according to the highest standards of sustainability and responsibility.

Company quality control certification

 

In accordance to the ISO 9001 certification, every passage in the production process, from the arrival of the raw material to the packaging of the finished product, is verified by experienced personnel through accurate quality control. The quality of the Panariagroup production sites is audited yearly by an external agency through detailed visits.

ISO 9001 Cotto d'Este Panariagroup

 

In accordance to the ISO 14001 certification, all the environmental aspects concerned in the production of our tiles are constantly monitored, guaranteeing the use of the best technologies on the market in order to reduce the environmental impact. The environmental system of the Panariagroup production sites is audited yearly by an external agency through detailed visits.

The EU EMAS Eco-Management and Audit Scheme for organisations requires the creation of a complete system of environmental management based on constant improvement. The system is based on the establishment of a rapport of cooperation and trust with employees, local authorities and the public. An Environmental Declaration is the final product of such process.

Shipping and logistics are still operational.

Italy, as well as many other countries around the world, is engaged in an aggressive battle against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

In order to keep the number of infections to a minimum, the Italian government has declared the temporary and limited closure of many manufacturing industries.

Nevertheless, certain activities related to the supervision of continuous production plants, such as the ones used in ceramic tile manufacturing, together with the preparation and shipping of stock materials have been permitted.

Therefore our warehouses and shipment departments remain fully operational, in full respect of the recent regulations imposed by the relevant authorities. Our staff will therefore continue to prepare and load merchandise, observing all of the necessary health and safety precautions.

Thanks to the remote working technologies that have already been implemented, all other sales supporting activities as well as your commercial and administrative contacts remain available, as always, to handle your requests.

We therefore wish to inform you that even during this manufacturing standstill, it is still possible to place orders, consult stock availability, request information, and pick up goods from our warehouses.
