Fabrication standard issued for formal vote
The European fabrication standard EN 1090-2 has been issued for formal vote and if accepted it will replace national standards this June.
“An announcement is expected by the end of March,” Dr David Moore, BCSA Director of Engineer- ing said. “And as most European member States will probably vote in favour of the standard, it will im-mediately take affect with no overlap period.”
