CE Marking of Structural Steelwork

BS EN 1090-1 will shortly become mandatory for all manufacturers involved in structural steelwork. This includes products such as steel sections, bolts, welding consumables and fabricated steel components that are used in building, bridges, highways or other civil engineering projects. If this applies to your business, this workshop will explain what you need to do, and how MAS can potentially fund part of the work to prepare your business to meet the new standard.

You may already be aware that CE Marking is a declaration by the manufacturer that the product meets certain public safety requirements. The public safety requirements are a set of Essential Characteristics that each product must satisfy and these characteristics are given in the product’s harmonised standard. For steel structures the main harmonised standards are:

•           Steel sections and plate – BS EN 10025-1

•           Hollow sections – BS EN 10219- 1 and BS EN 10210-1

•           Pre-loadable bolts – BS EN 14399-1

•           Non-pre-loadable bolts- BS EN 15048-1

•           Fabricated steel – BS EN 1090-
