Abstract

Design and Implementation of Product Certification System for Building & Construction Materials

Testing and certification services trade was earmarked in 2009 as one of the six new pillar industries for propelling Hong Kong towards a knowledge-based economy. A new Quality Assurance approach of “Tested in Hong Kong; Certified in Hong Kong” through product certification is imposed to promote greater quality assurance, safety and reliability of construction materials and products. Product Certification is the process that products are certified to have achieved prescribed standards and quality requirements, through regular factory surveillance and periodic random sampling and testing of products, by a third party of accredited certification body. Eleven major building materials product certification were implemented since 2011, including fire rated timber doors and panel wall partitions, cement products (for architectural use), tile adhesives, ceramic tiles and repair mortars, and aluminum windows and 4-bar hinges assembly. These building products are procured through main contractors under the contracts. Product quality is always of prime concern since rework of non-complying building products would cause substantial delay and financial loss, plus potential disruption to occupants. In terms of environmental sustainability, the major building developer aims at building products sourcing within 800 km. These products are therefore mostly manufactured in the Pearl River Region in mainland China. In this paper, we share the management and design and technical factors governing the design and implementation of a Product Certification System for construction materials.
