Understanding EN 10204:Type 3.2 Certification from Lloyd's Register

msis-isp-2017-type 32 guide header

Material specification and certification requirements are becoming ever more complex.

As materials need to perform in increasingly aggressive environments and exposed to more elevated temperatures and pressures, the need to verify the production of material is also increasing. With supply chains that span the globe, it's far too easy to lose track of a material's production history. 

That's where the standard EN 10204 comes into play. EN 10204 relates to the type of inspection documentation, but many manufacturers don't understand its full safety impact, particularly that of the standard's type 3.2 certification.

Lloyd's Register has put together this document to help explain type 3.2 and what is and isn't allowed. Fill out the form and we'll email you a complimentary copy.
