BS EN 1090 (CE Marking) Structural Steel
If you are involved in the manufacture of structural metal components or kits, you need to demonstrate that your products comply with BS EN 1090 as well as prove product conformance through mandatory CE marking.
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 regulated by criminal law and the penalties for not adhering to this mandate may result in fines, 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.
BS EN 1090 Certification
To gain certification and be awarded a CE Mark, you are required to undertake the following:
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.
