If you are involved in the manufacture of structural metal components or kits, you now need to demonstrate that your products comply with BS EN 1090 as well as prove product conformance through mandatory CE marking. Since 01 July 2014 it is a criminal offence to supply and trade structural metalwork on the European market unless it adheres to this standard and carries a legitimate CE mark. CE Marking is also a requirement of the Construction Products Regulation to harmonise the safety performance of construction products across the EU. CE Marking is however regulated by criminal law and the penalties for not adhering to this mandate may result in fine, imprisonment or product recall.

We offer assessment and certification to ISO 9001, which is an integral part of the CE Marking process. As a Notified Body, we can also provide Factory Production Control (FPC) certification to BS EN 1090 for structural metal products and ancillaries.

Alternatively give us a call to understand how to meet the requirements of the standard and gain the correct CE mark for your products.

To gain certification and be awarded a CE Mark, you are required to undertake the following:

  • Initial type-testing of your products
  • Factory Production Control

You must also be assessed by a Notified Body such as Alcumus ISOQAR that will carry out:

  • Initial inspection of your manufacturing plant
  • Initial inspection of your FPC
  • Continuous surveillance, assessment and approval of your FPC

We will then issue an FPC certificate and Welding Certificate identifying the Execution Class that you have achieved.
