Our certifications: a necessity and a recognition
Everyday, BIO-UV aims at improving the quality and performance of our products. Being type approved both on national and international levels represents the completion of a continuous work, based on an evolution process for the preservation of water quality.
With its technological lead, BIO-UV was the first company and the unique French maker to be certified by the French Ministry of Health Services for the dechloramination since 2004.
BIO-UV is also the only company to be certified for the low and medium pressure.
In 2003, BIO-UV developed and patented a special range of products for disinfecting and dechloraminating commercial pools and spas because, in most countries, chlorine remains mandatory as a disinfectant. So far, more than 4 000 commercial pools & spas in Europe have been equipped with UV-C treatment, for the total satisfaction of their users and operators and for a healthier environment.
- greater comfort for bathers,
- better image of the pool in terms of water treatment safety,
- quick return on investment,
- strict respect of reglementations in each country,
- bathers' and staff protection,
- a real action of sustainable development.
BIO-UV water purifiers are certified by the French Ministry of Health Services for UV disinfection and dechloramination (chloramines destruction) since November 2004.
BIO-UV is ISO 9001:2008 certified.
Many systems are NSF and ÖNORM certified.
Water treatment is subjected to strict normative rules. Each BIO-UV reactor is therefore being tested and meets the strictest requirements of efficiency and reliability.
All BIO-UV systems include one or more certified UV lamps, in order to provide with an increasingly effective water treatment without any risk for your health.
Our systems are:
- certified by the French Ministry of Health Services (commercial pools and drinking water),
- EEC and UL/CA certified (for USA and Canada),
