Eurovent Certita Certification announces new certification programme for Air Cleaners

Eurovent Certita Certification (ECC) has launched a new programme for Air Cleaners and granted the first certificates to three independent air cleaners with clean air efficiencies for particles, gaseous pollutants, microorganisms and allergens. Clean Air Efficiency classes are presented on a label which allows end users to compare between products.

This new certification programme is intended for all independent air cleaners for both residential and non-residential applications. The process of certification is based on factory audits, random product sampling, and tests according to NF B44-200:2016 for air cleaning performances and ISO 3741:2012 for acoustic performances. These tests are conducted by independent testing laboratories.

Resulting Clean Air Efficiency classes are presented on a specific Efficiency Label titled ‘Clean Air Efficiency’. This allows end users to compare easily between the different independent air cleaners.

Other performances are certified as follows:

  • Purified air flow rates for pollutants such as particles, gaseous pollutants, microorganisms and allergens
  • Recommended room area
  • Sound power level
  • Energy consumption
  • Air flow rate
