As of the 1st July 2014 it became compulsory that all structural steelwork was CE marked. The CE Mark is a certification that indicates conformity with health, safety and environmental protection standards. It enables consumers purchasing CE Marked goods to have confidence that the product they have bought is of a high standard.
Under the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) there are new legal obligations that have been introduced to producers and steel manufacturers within the EU. This applies not only to constituent products (beams, etc), but also to the fabricated elements.
The standard that fabricated structural steelwork must meet is BS EN 1090: Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures.Here at Gareth Pugh Steel Framed Buildings we have been awarded the EC Certificate of Conformity of the Factory Production Control. We are annually assessed by the CFA to ensure that we continue to meet the required standards. This means that all of our steel framed buildings and structural steelwork are CE Marked.
