as elements for determining the carbon equivalent value shall be reported.
6 Assessment and verification of constancy of performance
6.1 General

The compliance of a hot rolled product of structural steels with the requirements of this standard and with the

performance declared by the manufacturer in the DoP shall be demonstrated by:
 determination of the product type;
 factory production control by the manufacturer, including product assessment.

The manufacturer shall always retain the overall control and shall have the necessary means to take

responsibility for the conformity of the product with its declared performance(s).

6.2 Type testing
6.2.1 General

The determination of the product type shall be performed for all characteristics included in the standard for

which the manufacturer declares performances:

 at the beginning of the production of a new or modified hot rolled product of structural steels (unless a

member of the same product range), or

 at the beginning of a new or modified method of production (where this may affect the stated properties),

or it shall be repeated for the appropriate characteristic(s), whenever a change occurs in the hot rolled

product of structural steel design, in the raw material, or in the method of production process (subject to

the definition of a family), which would affect significantly one or more of the characteristics.

Assessment previously performed in accordance with the provisions of this standard, may be taken into

account provided that they were made to the same or a more rigorous test method, under the same AVCP

system on the same product or products of similar design, construction and functionality, such that the results

are applicable to the product in question.
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
oSIST prEN 10025-1:2014
prEN 10025-1:2014 (E)

For the purposes of assessment, the manufacturer's products may be grouped into families, where it is

considered that the results for one or more characteristics from any one product within the family are

representative for those same characteristics for all products within that same family.

NOTE 1 Products may be grouped in different families for different characteristics.

NOTE 2 Reference to the assessment method standards should be made to allow the selection of a suitable

representative sample.

Products bearing regulatory marking in accordance with appropriate harmonized European specifications may

be presumed to have the performances declared in the DoP, although this does not replace the responsibility

on the hot rolled product of structural steel manufacturer to ensure that the hot rolled product of structural

steel as a whole is correctly manufactured.
6.2.2 Test samples, testing and compliance criteria

The number of samples of hot rolled products of structural steel to be tested/assessed shall be in accordance

with Table 1.
Table 1 — Number of samples to be tested and compliance criteria

Characteristics Requirements Assessment method No. of samples Compliance criteria

oSIST prEN 10025-1:2014
prEN 10025-1:2014 (E)
6.3 Factory production control (FPC)
6.3.1 General

The manufacturer shall establish, document and maintain an FPC system to ensure that the products placed

on the market comply with the declared performance of the essential characteristics.

The FPC system shall consist of procedures, regular inspections and tests and/or assessments and the use of

the results to control raw and other incoming materials or components, equipment, the production process and

the product. All the elements, requirements and provisions adopted by the manufacturer shall be documented

in a systematic manner in the form of written policies and procedures.

This factory production control system documentation shall ensure a common understanding of the evaluation

of the constancy of performance and enable the achievement of the required product performances and the

effective operation of the production control system to be checked. Factory production control therefore brings

together operational techniques and all measures allowing maintenance and control of the compliance of the

product with the declared performances of the essential characteristics.
6.3.2 Requirements
6.3.2.1 General

The manufacturer is responsible for organizing the effective implementation of the FPC system in line with the

content of this product standard. Tasks and responsibilities in the production control organization shall be

documented and this documentation shall be kept up-to-date.

The responsibility, authority and the relationship between personnel that manages, performs or verifies work

affecting product constancy, shall be defined. This applies in particular to personnel that need to initiate

actions preventing product non-constancies from occurring, actions in case of non-constancies and to identify

and register product constancy problems.

Personnel performing work affecting the constancy of performance of the product shall be competent on the

basis of appropriate education, training, skills and experience for which records shall be maintained.

In each factory the manufacturer may delegate the action to a person having the necessary authority to:

 identify procedures to demonstrate constancy of performance of the product at appropriate stages;

 identify and record any instance of non-constancy;
 identify procedures to correct instances of non-constancy.

The manufacturer shall draw up and keep up-to-date documents defining the factory production control. The

manufacturer's documentation and procedures should be appropriate to the product and manufacturing

process. The FPC system should achieve an appropriate level of confidence in the constancy of performance

of the product. This involves:

a) the preparation of documented procedures and instructions relating to factory production control

operations, in accordance with the requirements of the technical specification to which reference is made;

b) the effective implementation of these procedures and instructions;
c) the recording of these operations and their results;

d) the use of these results to correct any deviations, repair the effects of such deviations, treat any resulting

instances of non-conformity and, if necessary, revise the FPC to rectify the cause of non-constancy of

performance.
