CE Marking - BS EN 1090 Part 1

BS EN 1090 for structural steel and aluminium is a requirement for products to be sold in Europe, and any organizations who design and/or manufacture steel or aluminium components must adhere to this standard.

Whether in the form of steel frames or metal roofing, any structural engineers, component manufacturers, and anyone with a hand in the steel or aluminium based components that go into metal buildings/building work, should be aware of this.

CE marking to BS EN 1090 is now a legal requirement

Since July 2014, structural steelwork and aluminium fall under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), which means aluminium or structural steel CE marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1 (the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork).
