CE Marking is an industry standard that companies such as Steel Arts must adhere to. If you have heard of the term CE Marking but are not too sure what it entails, let’s take a closer look.
What is CE Marking?
A CE Mark is a declaration given by the manufacturer to a customer. It guarantees that the product involved complies with the necessary EU Legislation.
Since July 2013, in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation 2011 (CPR), it became compulsory for manufacturers to apply this CE Marking to their products covered by a Harmonised European Standard (HEN) or European Technical Assessment (ETA).
Members of the RIDBA (Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association) who manufacture frames must show the CE Mark on their products and those who purchase may only buy CE Marked items.
Any steel products that are covered by the following standards must have the CE Mark:
- Open Sections – BS EN 10025-1
- Hollow Sections – BS EN 10210-1 and BS EN 10219-1
- Plates – BS EN 10025-1
- Bolting Assemblies – BS EN 15048-1 and BS EN 14399-1
In addition, since July 2014, any steel/aluminium products that are covered by the following standards must have the CE Mark:
- Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures – BS EN 1090
