  • piling and replenishment
  • raw material for sand and aggregate cement
  • raw material for stabilised mixtures
  • hydraulic engineering works

What does Copro do?

  • Performs a fixed number of inspections at the production location.
  • Random inspection of whether the producer is performing its internal controls correctly, is respecting its acceptance regulations, and is keeping its records up-to-date.
  • Taking samples at fixed intervals and randomly being present at tests.

What are the benefits of the certified product?

  • Use in higher-quality applications.
  • Trust in the structural and environmental-hygienic product quality.
  • The recycled aggregates are checked at fixed intervals by the producer. COPRO monitors this.
  • Supervision of the production process. This keeps the properties of the recycled aggregates constant.
  • In addition to the ecological aspect, mobile crushing on site also has an economic advantage for the client, and re-use of the aggregates on site is possible.
