3.1 Product Certification Example Documents
Snaplock® Stainless Steel camlocks can be supplied with a 3.1 Material Certificate, but this must be requested when the products are ordered. In order to provide traceability, the certificate(s) guarantee the grade of the Stainless Steel used in manufacturing. The standard for inspection documents for Stainless Steel (and some other products) is BS EN 10204 type 3.1.
A 3.1 material certificate is vital to ensure the grade of material is as you requested. We have encountered situations where some manufacturers are supplying 304 Stainless Steel as 316 in order to keep the cost of the product down, so if this is an important aspect to the products you source, just let us know and we can make sure you receive product certificates.
