Forum on CE Marking held in London
In order to discuss CE Marking requirements for fabricated steelwork the BCSA hosted a European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) workshop in London on 29 September.
The workshop, which was attended by 30 people from ten European countries, also discussed the views from other member states on both the interpretation of the recommendations in EN 1090-1 (CE Marking standard) and the implementation of CE Marking.
At the workshop presentations were given by Dr David Moore, BCSA Director of Engineering, on the Construction Products Directive and the regulatory background; Dr Roger Pope, BCSA Consultant, on the basis of CE Marking in EN 1090-1 and EN 1090-1; and Jeff Garner, BCSA Welding and Fabrication Manager, on welding quality management requirements.
