FRCM: deadline for mandatory CVT extended to 30 June 2022

As is known between 2020 and 2022 the obligation for all manufacturers to be in possession of the CVT – Certificate of Technical Assessment. This certification makes them able to market in Italy their systems for structural reinforcement.

The CVT is issued by the Central Technical Service (hereinafter STC), on the basis of guidelines approved by the Board of Public Works.

In order to obtain the CVT, the Manufacturer must have all the qualification tests (initial type tests) performed by the appropriate Authorized Laboratory that issues specific Test Report and sends it directly to the STC.

For FRP (carbon, glass or aramid, steel, and basalt) and FRC systems, the CVT is already mandatory. 

The CVT extension

With the Decree of the President of the Board of Public Works n. 130 and n. 131 of 30 June 2021 the obligation of CVT for FRCM and CRM systems was extended until 30 June 2022.

Therefore, until the release of the CVT, the declarations of conformity provided for in the previous decrees are valid to be issued to designers, DL, testers, bodies and companies. Manufacturers will therefore still have time to complete any procedures for the qualification of their products. The Technical Assessment Certificate is mandatory for all manufacturers in order to be able to market their fibre-reinforced composite materials in Italy.
