At PG Merlin we have worked closely with our customers to help them comply with the CE Mark EN 1090 which came in to UK law 1st July 2014.

To this aim all our welding wires (MIG & TIG) MMA Electrodes have CE certification and at the point of sale if requested a mill certificate will be supplied with the goods to correspond to the cast numbers.

With regard to Mechanical fastening (Nuts, Bolts & Chemical Anchors)
It is not possible to CE mark fasteners we can in these cases supply a certificate of conformity to BSI, EN or DIN number if this applies to the fastener.

Below is some information that may help:

EU & UK Law in 2012 The Construction Products Regulations (CPR) was introduced, this places a requirement on construction products that have a harmonized standard to be CE Marked. EN1090 is the harmonized standard for structural steel however the implementation of EN1090 has been delayed until 1st July 2014. As of the 1st July 2014 it will be a criminal offence to supply structural metalwork unless it conforms to this standard and carries a legitimate CE mark.

EN 1090 consists of the following three sections:

  • Part 1: Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components. Details of all the individual requirements which must be achieved in order to CE mark. Different levels of stringency are given depending on the execution class.
  • Part 2: Technical requirements for steel structures
  • Part 3: Technical requirements for aluminum structures

Parts 2 and 3 support the application of Part 1 by providing the technical requirements relevant to the manufacture of steel and aluminum components respectively.

In relation to CE Marking, the relevant clauses of the standard are:

  1. Scope
  2. Normative references
  3. Terms and definitions
  4. Specifications and documentation
  5. Constituent products
  6. Preparation and assembly
  7. Welding
  8. Mechanical fastening
  9. Erection
  10. Surface treatment
  11. Geometrical tolerances
  12. Inspection, testing and correction.

If all you do is to make components following your customers’ specification, you are not required to demonstrate that the design of the component is adequate, merely that you can reliably manufacture the item as specified. For more details, please see the following section “Component Specification”.
