UKCA / CE Marking for steel and aluminium fabricators and processors

In 2014 the construction industry faced one of the most significant changes for a decade as CE Marking of construction products become mandatory in all Member states throughout the European Union.

If your organisation is involved in the manufacture of structural metal components or kits, you must demonstrate that your products comply with BS EN 1090-1 as well as providing product conformance through mandatory UKCA / CE marking. Compliance will allow you to continue selling your products within the United Kingdom and the EU.

As from the 01 July 2014 it became a criminal offence to supply and trade structural metalwork on the UK and European market unless it adheres to this standard and carries a legitimate UKCA, UK(NI) or CE mark.
