CE Marking of fabricated steel imminent
Following the first Formal Vote the CEN Consultant insisted on a change on the frequency of surveillance of factory production control systems by the notified bodies.
The Chairman of the BSI committee, responsible for EN1090-1 has debated this point and is happy to accept it and therefore the UK will put forward a positive vote to CEN.
It is anticipated that the majority of member states will vote in favour of the standard and it will come in to force in October 2008. There is a one year overlap when either national provisions or the standard may be used, after which CE Marking will become mandatory in most member states.
