ECC - Fresh start for fan certification


Eurovent Certita Certification has added a revamped fan certification scheme to its portfolio of Eurovent Certified Performance programmes. Developed specifically for fans intended for use in Air Handling Units (AHUs), the new programme is sure to breathe fresh air into fan certification.


Redevelopment of the fan programme started back in the spring of 2023, with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Eurovent Certita Certification, the Eurovent trade association, the Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) International Inc, the European Air Movement and Control Association (EU AMCA) and the Asia Air Movement and Control Association (ASIA AMCA). Since then, Eurovent Certita Certification has been working in collaboration with the AMCA to develop an added-value fan certification programme, offering a more dynamic approach to certifying products.


Aiming to tear down the administrative and cost barriers that fan manufacturers face when certifying products, the certification programme has been developed using world renowned AMCA evaluation protocols and the stringent Eurovent Certita Certification audit process.

Combining the best of AMCA and Eurovent into a groundbreaking certification programme, the new scheme enables manufactures to prove beyond doubt the performance and reliability of products, while allowing HVAC professionals to identify, specify and install products they can trust.


Under the improved Eurovent Certified Performance programme for fans, products are evaluated by the AMCA according to their most-current testing and rating standards, covering aspects such as air flow rates and available pressure, with options for certifying acoustic characteristics and energy efficiency.

Once products have achieved AMCA certification, they can apply for the Fans Eurovent Certified Performance mark by undergoing an initial admission audit. This one-day audit verifies the consistency between what is declared by manufacturers, upheld by AMCA certification, and what is produced and sold by the manufacturer, elevating certified products to a new level of validation.


In addition to this initial audit, Eurovent Certita Certification will carry out an annual audit to ensure products continue to reach certification standards. The yearly audit has other benefits as it aids manufacturers own quality control processes and reduces the risk and costs associated with quality issues and customer complaints. Additionally, audits provide substantial feedback which can be useful for R&D teams and product development.


For those specifying, installing and operating products, the revamped certification scheme ensures professionals can be confident that certified products will deliver the performance promised by the manufacturer. Fan certification will be available globally, in a joined-up programme designed to keep certification standards high, while reducing manufacturer costs and administrative burden.


“The new Eurovent Certified Performance programme for fans is a marriage between AMCA testing standards and Eurovent Certita Certification’s audit process. By joining together the expertise of our respective teams, we have evolved fan evaluation and validation by creating a next generation certification scheme, that will benefit not only fan and AHU manufacturers, but the whole industry internationally.”

Sylvain Courtey, President of Eurovent Certita Certification
