Updated CE Marking supplement now available
The CE Marking supplement produced by the British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) and Tata Steel has been updated to include the latest procedure for selecting the Execution Class for a structure.
CE Marking for all construction products covered by a harmonised European standard or conforming to a European Technical Assessment became mandatory on 1 July 2013.
For fabricated structural steelwork, CE Marking became mandatory on 1 July 2014. This represents a major development for engineers, contractors and steelwork specialists, as it demands careful attention to the new obligations imposed.
The original 20-page supplement highlighted how the steel construction sector had been working behind the scenes towards achieving CE Marking. Importantly, it spelt out in detail what it means for the rest of the construction sector and what you need to do to comply with the Construction Products Regulation.
The updated 18-page supplement includes an important change in the selection of Execution Class, which should now be based on the recommendations given in normative Annex C of BS EN 1993-1-1:2005+A1:2014 and its supporting National Annex.
