Assessments

In order to make an assessment, BVB needs to know the content of the product. Please fill in BVBs application form. An EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) is always a good complement to an assessment. 

If your product is:

  • An electronic device: please attach RoHS certificate
  • Chemical product: also attach safety datasheet
  • to be used indoors: attach emission report

When your application is complete, please send it to bedomning@byggvarubedomningen.se. In that e-mail, please specify:

  • Your VAT-nr
  • Full name of your company
  • Description of the product along with EAN-nr (if exist)
  • Accept the cost of 1200 SEK/ assessment (it is possible to get the invoice in Euro)

An assessment takes 10 days. When the assessment is completed, the producer always gets a preliminary result and has 14 days before the assessment becomes public. During these 14 days you can contact bedomning@byggvarubedomningen.se in order to improve your assessments with e.g. better documents.
