This verifies compliance with the detailed requirements of BS EN 1090:2-2018 and EN ISO 3834:2 & 3-2005.

CE Marking

Communaute Europeenne (‘CE’ or ‘European Community’) was introduced in 1995 and CE Marking was created to stimulate the free circulation of goods within the European Community by removing barriers created by differing standards in member states. When applied to any product or equipment indicates that the manufacturer or its authorised EU representative has declared that the product of equipment compiles with all applicable European Directives. Certification became mandatory on 1st July 2014, from which time it became illegal to sell fabricated structural steelwork in the UK or the Republic of Ireland that does not carry the CE Mark. CE Marking is not allowed unless the Factory Production Control (FPC) system under which they are produced has been assessed by a suitable certification body that has been approved to the European Commission. Steelwork has been divided into four categories for certification and a steelwork contractor may not produce steel in a higher category than it is certified. The categories are:

  • Execution Class 2 – Buildings
  • Execution Class 3 – Bridges
  • Execution Class 4 – Special structures
