BCSA outlines CE Marking options for stockholders
After two recent BCSA Process and Technical Committee meetings two options regarding stockholders’ compliance with forthcoming CE Marking legislation were put forward.
Services offered by stockholders include a number of fabrication activities, such as drilling, cutting and painting, which are covered by the new CE Marking standard BS EN 1090-1.
The two options discussed are: Option 1, whereby the stockholder is sub-contracted to the steelwork contractor and all of its activities are encompassed by that steelwork contractor’s CE Marking processes. Option 2, would see stockholders CE Marking modified sections in accordance with BS EN 1090-1.
Dr David Moore, BCSA Director of Engineering, said: “At both meetings the preferred option was for stockholders to implement Option 2 and CE Mark the modified steel sections in accordance with the forthcoming European standard.”
BS EN 1090-1 has recently been approved by Member States and it is anticipated that it will come in to force in October this year. Currently there is a one year overlap when either national provisions or the CE Marking standard may be used.
