CE Marking BS EN 1090 – 0513-CPR-19339

CE Marking (originally Conformité Européenne) demonstrates compliance with the appropriate manufacturing standard for a product. As a symbol, it will be familiar as it has been a requirement for many years on products sold in the European Union, such as toys and electrical goods.

It has been a legal requirement that all structural steel fabrications are CE marked in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) since 2014. This affects every construction project from a simple domestic house extension to the building of power stations! A number of small to medium-sized fabrication companies have chosen not to invest their time and money into gaining the certification, which means that it is illegal for them to supply & manufacture fabricated structural steelwork.

JOHN W. LAYCOCK Ltd. has been audited by the notified body Alcumus ISOQAR and is proud to be fully compliant with CE Marking requirements to BS EN 1090-1 and can manufacture structural steel fabrications up to and including Execution Class 2. 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:

Under our CE certification we can manufacture structural steel structures up to and including Execution Class 2.

For all our steelwork projects, we will provide the CE Mark upon delivery or collection of your goods and have available the following documentation to satisfy compliance with the CPR:

  1. CE Certificate for Factory Production Control (FPC)
  2. Declaration of Performance (DoP)

The CE Mark, alongside our existing production capabilities, contribute to us achieving the quality and flexibility that delivers projects on time and to the required high standard. By complying with the standard, the JOHN W. LAYCOCK Ltd. can ensure that clients and contractors are given confidence throughout the supply chain – from the manufacture of  steel sections to fabrication by qualified welders.

In January 2021 the CE Mark will be replaced with the UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking.  Alcumus ISOQAR will transition from being a Notified Body to an Approved Body and our certification will likewise transition across.  There will be no change to the scope of our certification.
