After the 1st of July 2014 it became a criminal offence to supply metalwork for civil engineering uses without a legitimate CE mark. The harmonised European standard for structural steel and aluminium is BS EN 1090-1:2009 +A1:2011, otherwise known as EN 1090 part 1.
The regulations apply to a wide range of activities involving “series” manufactured items; fabricators of structural beams and frames, manufacturers of secondary metal access, platforms and barriers that have a structural element in their design,m stockholders and metal processors that modify stock for a construction end-use, for example by drilling, painting, bending and hot-cutting, and importers of structural metalwork kits or components
By “series”, the regulations mean any activity that an organisation carries out more than once, not just the production of a series of standard items. For example a factory that makes bespoke staircases is in the business of “series” manufacture of staircases and all of them will need to carry a CE mark.
