The Construction Product Regulations (CPR certification) requires from 1st July 2014, that Structural Fabrications will be compliant to the Regulations and to be CE Marked. The Regulations have risk-rated for different types of structural fabrications. The lowest risk like basic farm-type buildings, are excluded. The Regulations are EU wide.
Contact us today to also benefit from CE Marking to Construction Products Regulations. The requirements are complex due the number of relevant Standards referenced and the detail required particularly for processes like welding, finishing & painting as well as non-destructive testing.

Construction Product Regulations (CPR) is based on ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard and requires a Factory Production Control system. It is not essential to be certified to ISO 9001 but since to gain CE Mark most of the requirements are required, most Clients have gained an ISO 9001 certificate at the same time.
Additionally there are product specification-related Standards that need to be complied with depending on the risk-rating of the planned Structural Fabrication, which are called the “Execution Class”. Examples of the relevant Standards include:
Organisations, to achieve CE Marking Certification, must be committed to a focused and systematic approach to business with fact based decision making. They should be able to demonstrate both internally and to the external Assessor:
Additionally any CPR Quality system must comply with the relevant standards and additional requirements. For those organisations that are welding, a suitably trained and experienced Responsible Welding Co-ordinator (RWC) is required.
CPR provides a systematic and integrated approach to business processes. It provides a clear structure of operating processes, with an emphasis on continual improvement of working systems as well as reducing errors, duplication, complaints and problems.
If your business supplies Structural Fabrications beyond low-risk Farm buildings, then you require CE Mark to remain in business after 1st July 2014
So that is the Bad News
The Good News is that there are great opportunities created by these increased controls for those, who have invested in CE Mark.
