Nick Kerner and Sons Ltd have achieved compliance with BS EN 1090-1: 2009 + A1:2011 Factory Production Control which allows us to in-house CE mark structural steelwork up to and including Execution Class Three in accordance with the Construction Products Directive. This accreditation is subject to regular factory inspections by the Steel Construction Certification Scheme to ensure that the high standards demanded by this Execution Class are maintained.
The construction industry is facing one of the most significant changes for a decade as CE Marking of construction products becomes mandatory in all Member States throughout the European Union and the European Economic Area.
CE Marking demonstrates rigid compliance with the appropriate manufacturing standard for a product. This European standard of conformancy became mandatory on 1st July 2013.
For fabricated structural steelwork, CE Marking became mandatory on 1st July 2014. This represents a major development for engineers, contractors and steelwork specialists and it demands careful attebntion to the obligations imposed.
Since leaving the EU the government in the UK have committed to upholding this standard and are looking to rename it…watch this space.
