Can you prove that your nice new building and steelwork is legally compliant?
From 1 July 2014, the harmonised standard, BS EN 1090 Execution of steel and aluminium structures, made it an offence to supply fabricated structural steelwork or aluminium to site, that does not conform to the standard and carry the CE Mark. Clients and Contractors are only permitted to use firms that are CE Marked with a specific ‘Execution Class’ appropriate for the project, as defined in BS EN 1090-1.
Depending on the nature of the offence, penalties include suspension notices, prohibition notices, notices to warn, application for forfeiture, fines or imprisonment. Failure to comply may also invalidate project insurance and warranties.
