EN1090 CE Marking and Construction Products Regulations
The CPR is the UK version of the European Construction Products Directive and requires steel and aluminium structures that is placed on the market to be CE marked. CE marking may be applied to the fabrication or product provided that the manufacturer can demonstrate that the components comply with the relevant harmonised standards regarded by the European Commission as satisfying the Essential Safety Requirements set out in the Directive. E.G: BS EN 1090.
The CE Marking of construction products became mandatory in the summer of 2014 after which time all structural steel and aluminium fabricators must be able to demonstrate compliance with BS EN 1090 Execution of Steel Structures and Aluminium Structures, the harmonised standard for the construction products regulation.
The revised version of EN1090-2 was issued in June 2018 and consequently all organisations who currently hold certification will need to implement the required changes before the 31st Dec 2018, after which time all nominated body assessments will be conducted against this new version of the standard…
