State type approval for portable fire extinguishers

This information is provided by Netherlands Enterprise Agency

If you market portable fire extinguishers in the Netherlands, you must have a state type approval (Rijkstypekeur) number. Kiwa FSS issues these type approval certificates. 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 ban its sale in the Netherlands only in exceptional cases.
