TAIPEI, , Aug. 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- G-Tech Optoelectronics Corp. (GTOC), a part of the Foxconn Group, recently became the first company in Taiwan to obtain CE certification for building glass after completing the EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR) certification process through TUV Rheinland. The certification was formally presented to Tony Chiu, Vice President of GTOC, by Max Lyou, Managing Director of TUV Rheinland Taiwan. The company's tempered glass, homogeneous glass, and laminated glass products must all pass safety and environmental testing to qualify for EU CPR certification. Its production and quality control system must meet all of the relevant requirements as well. GTOC is a leading provider of opto-electronics processing services, with an emphasis on very large ultra-thin glass and custom specifications involving special technologies and customer requirements. GTOC products are sold both locally and internationally.

The CE certification standards for construction products were tightened in Europe with the introduction of the Construction Product Regulations 305/2011/EU (CPR), which took effect on July 1, 2013. The CPR replaces the previous Construction Product Directive 89/106/EEC (CPD). The CE mark must be displayed on all CPR-compliant construction products as assurance of their material performance and reliability. Only construction products with the CE mark are deemed to be safe, thereby allowing their free movement throughout the EU.

GTOC is now the largest provider of glass processing services in Taiwan in the opto-electronics sector. The company's core technologies include glass cutting, polishing, coating, and tempering. Applications include mobile phones, tablets, notebooks, and LCD TVs. The company has invested in the manufacturing and mass production of 3D-shaped glass in recent years in order to expand the application of opto-electronics glass from general consumer electronics to device casing, automotive items, everyday items, and special molds. In 2013, GTOC expanded into the promotion of green building glass products such as low-emissivity energy-saving glass, ECW smart electro-chromatic glass, eco-friendly decorative coated glass, and easy-to-clean anti-misting glass, as well as into a variety of glass processing services including surface treatment of building glass as well as glass tempering, lamination, and insulation.

"To achieve customer satisfaction and comply with requirements in keeping with the spirit of a customer-oriented approach, we gave the certification program our full support," said GTOC Vice President Chiu at the certification presentation. "Successful certification by TUV Rheinland means that our products can now be sold in western markets."

The TUV Rheinland Group is a leading provider of testing, certification, and inspection services worldwide. As a Notified Body for a number of EU CPR products, it can provide certification for products such as natural masonry, ceramic tiles, ceiling panels, timber flooring, aluminum-alloy metal products, building glass, and building windows.
