EN 1090-1 for Structural metalwork

From July 1st 2014 the vast majority of primary and secondary load-bearing metalwork supplied into construction must be CE marked using the EN 1090-1 standard.  This is now a legal requirement that applies to fabricators, component manufacturers, material processors (such as bending, heat-cutting, galvanizing, drilling) and importers.

 
 

Structural metalwork & CE marking with EN 1090-1

To CE mark structural metalwork, a company needs a Factory Production Control system that conforms to EN 1090-1 that takes into account other standards such as the welding quality management system ISO 3834 and that has been externally assessed by a competent third party known as a Notified Body.

EN 1090-1 is a quality management system for structural metalwork that is used to manage a job from development of a design brief with a customer, through to final approval for shipping, so that the metalwork meets the customer’s expectations and is structurally sound.

How Construction Certification works with clients on CE marking of structural metalwork

  • Coordinate the qualification and training of welder/fabricators and the Responsible Welding Coordinator.

  • Monitor and chase progress to keep the project on track
