WHY A SEAL OF QUALITY?
The quality seal initiative for construction materials to be incorporated into heritage rehabilitation/restoration works is born on the one hand from an appeal from the institutions and actors involved in this field in the face of recurrent evidence of bad performance or experiences in rehabilitation, and on the other from the verification that the performance of materials to be used in heritage works, in relation to their essential characteristics, cannot be evaluated only according to existing harmonised standards, so an additional technical assessment of suitability for heritage is necessary on the basis of new evaluation criteria not covered by the legislation, given the specificity of the use for which they are intended.
