Jack Sanderson, BCSA President, recently met Catherine Stihler Scottish MEP along with her colleagues Stephen O’Donnell (Political Advisor) and Pascale Lamb (Parliamentary Assistant) at Cairnhill Structures’ works in Coatbridge.

Catherine Stihler is the reporter for the European Parliamentary Committee on the Internal Market and Customer Protection (IMCO) which is responsible for Construction Products Regulations (CPR) and CE Marking for all construction products including fabricated steelwork.

The main aim of the meeting was to discuss the implications of some of the proposed changes to the CPR and their implications for the CE Marking of constructional steelwork.

Ms Stihler and her colleagues also took the opportunity to visit the Cairnhill workshop, walk  through the fabrication process and see at first hand the traceability, cutting, drilling and welding systems needed to fabricate a steel structure. After the visit Ms Stihler said: ‘Seeing things at first hand helps with my understanding of the challenges which face the steel industry.’
