This document was specifically released to define the requirements of DNV GL classification society relating to the certification requirements as applicable to the portable fire extinguishers. The scheme of certification is primarily based on the type testing and assessment of the quality control system established at the factory, continuous quality control at manufacturer's and external inspection performed by the DNV GL professionals. A certification license covers only portable fire extinguishers manufactured by one manufacturer at one location. The licensee carries the ultimate responsibility to ensure that the manufactured products are in full accordance with the licence. In addition, the Licensee must possess a system for record and handling of clients complaints and corrective actions. Should the licence get withdrawn or suspended, the licensee is obliged to pay all expenses in connection with replacement of the defective products by products conforming to the standard, if required. The certification licence is valid for a maximum of 5 years. A request for renewal must be sent to DNV GL no later than three months before the licence expires. A certification licence is not transferable. The licensee must not make the products available on the market before the issuance date of the licence. The products may be manufactured before the licence issuance date only if a satisfactory initial audit has been carried out for the batch in question...
