SCI announces CE Marking partnership
The Steel Construction Institute (SCI) and Ceram, the international materials technology company, are to work in partnership to deliver a testing and assessment service for clients.
The partnership recognises the relevance of Ceram’s testing facilities to the steel sector and in particular its needs for CE marking, as well as the SCI’s steel design engineering expertise.
By combining Ceram’s facilities with SCI’s specialist knowledge of the steel construction sector and its needs, clients will be better served going forward in what seems an ever more complicated regulatory environment.
Ceram has well established structural testing capabilities and has been involved with numerous major projects, including the 2012 Olympic Aquatics Centre.
SCI has experience of developing European Technical Approvals to cover unique construction products. A manufacturer can then progress towards CE marking, supported by a Notified Body which undertakes the assessment of factory production control. In partnership with a Notified Body, SCI can assist manufacturers in the CE marking process by developing the necessary European Technical Approval where a harmonized standard does not exist.
