Standards/tests

Standard Test Requirements

Internationally accepted standards guarantee that only safe equipment is allowed to be sold. Naturally each of our ropes not only fulfils, but exceeds both the EU rope norm EN 892, and also the stricter UIAA standards. But what do the various standards and symbols stand for?

EN

The Euro Norms have been especially tailored for products to be standardized. Therefore, a symbol is always accompanied by the number of the norm, (for dynamic ropes – EN 892; for static ropes EN 1891). Products which display the EU norm symbol fulfill the safety requirements and must have passed a production-sample test at a recognized test center.

CE-Conformity Symbol

This symbol shows that the manufacturer recognizes his own responsibility; it is not a quality symbol, but rather a type of passport for that product within the European Union. It means that the EN standards for product security are maintained. The number after the CE symbol (e.g. CE 1023) indicates the batch number or the standard/directive.

UIAA

Products which display this symbol fulfill the requirement standards of the UIAA. The UIAA, the International Union of Alpine Associations, has for decades pioneered the development of practically oriented standards. Therefore, in most cases, the UIAA-standards are somewhat more stringent than the Euro standards. All Mammut ropes fulfill the most recent UIAA requirements

ISO

The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) combines the united world-wide national normative organizations. The ISO Norm 9001 defines overall process rules for Quality Management. They maintain the continuous quality of products and services. Certifying is conducted by an external body for example the B.S.I.
