Applying for approval for portable fire extinguishers

This information is provided by

Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVO

If you want to sell portable fire extinguishers in the Netherlands, you must apply for a government type approval (Rijkstypekeur) number (in Dutch). The application form for applying for a government type approval (pdf) is available in English. Government type approval certificates are issued by Kiwa FSS. Portable fire extinguishers must fulfil the safety and quality requirements.

Please note: The technical requirements imposed by the Netherlands in respect of portable fire extinguishers differ from those of other EU Member States. If a portable fire extinguisher is already allowed in another Member State, the authorities may only ban its sale in the Netherlands in exceptional cases.
