A customer of ours is requesting material certified by the EN 10204 3.1B standard. They are also asking for identification. They are only looking for a material ceritifcation correct? Or do they expect our parts to be stamped/identified with EN 10204 3.1B somewhere? Our customer is based out of Europe, hence the request.
I'm not too familiar with the material standard, but nothing needs to be stamped on the material, does it?
Has anyone ever had to deal with this material standard?
Your european customer is asking for your test reports for your the product you're supplying. I used to work for a european OEM here in the U.S. and had to flowe down the Euro requirements. More often thant not the US standards were more than adequate. You just have to review the documents and fill the gaps in your reporting.
Also, as the supplier you have every right to request the specifications from the cutomer especially since they are doing business globally, they should also have an equivalent matrix of international standards. Propose the US standard you will provide them and they'll probably accept. I know I did.
