European Foreword

This document (EN 15101-1:2013+A1:2019) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 88

“Thermal insulating materials and products”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN.

This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an

identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by October 2019, and conflicting national standards shall

be withdrawn at the latest by October 2019.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the

European Free Trade Association !deleted text".

For relationship with EU !Regulation"(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of

this document.
This document includes Amendment 1 approved by CEN on 01 January 2019.
This document supersedes EN 15101-1:2013.

The start and finish of text introduced or altered by amendment is indicated in the text by tags !".

This European Standard consists of two parts which form a package. The first part is the harmonized

part satisfying the mandate !deleted text"and is the basis for the CE marking covering the products,

which are placed on the market. The second part, which is the non-harmonized part, covers the

installation checks for the installed products.

This European Standard is one of a series for mineral wool, expanded clay, expanded perlite, exfoliated

vermiculite, polyurethane/polyisocyanurate, cellulose, bound expanded polystyrene and expanded

polystyrene in situ formed insulation products used in buildings, but this standard may be used in other

areas where appropriate.

The reduction in energy used and emissions produced during the installed life of insulation products

exceeds by far the energy used and emissions made during the production and disposal processes.

According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organisations of the

following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria,

Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia,

France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta,

Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland,

1 Scope

This European Standard specifies requirements for loose-fill cellulose insulation (LFCI) products for the

thermal and/or sound insulation of buildings when installed into walls, floors, galleries, roofs and

ceilings.

This European Standard is a specification for the loose-fill cellulose insulation (LFCI) products before

installation.

This European Standard describes the product characteristics and includes procedures for testing,

marking and labelling and the rules for evaluation of conformity.

Products covered by this European Standard may also be used in prefabricated thermal insulation

systems and composite panels; the structural performance of systems incorporating these products is

not covered.

Products with a declared thermal conductivity at 10 °C greater than 0,060 W/(m × K) or a declared

thermal resistance lower than 0,25 m × K/W are not covered by this European Standard.

This European Standard does not specify the required level of all properties to be achieved by a product

to demonstrate fitness for purpose in a particular application. The required levels are to be found in

local regulations or non-conflicting standards.

This European Standard does not cover factory made cellulose products placed on the market as bats,

mats or boards intended to be used for the insulation of buildings or loose-fill cellulose products for the

insulation of building equipment and industrial installations.
