What does CE marking mean?
CE marking to BS EN 1090 is now a legal requirement. Since July 2014, structural steelwork falls under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). This means that structural steel CE marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1 (the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork). This covers any structural component that has been designed and fabricated to meet the BS EN 1991 series of standards (Eurocode 3 and 9) for steel structures in buildings.
