BS EN 1090

What is BS EN 1090 and CE marking for structural steel metalwork?

In 2012 The Construction Products Regulations (CPR) was introduced, this places a requirement on construction products that have a harmonised standard to be CE Marked. EN1090 is the harmonised standard for structural steel, as of 1st July 2014, it was made a criminal offence to supply structural metalwork unless it conforms to this standard and carries a legitimate CE mark.

The European Construction Products Directive is aimed at harmonising the safety performance of construction products across the EU and they apply to anything placed on the market, whether imported or manufactured in the EU.

The CPD defines six principles for materials that are to be used in civil engineering including:

  • Mechanical resistance & stability (ITT / initial type testing)
  • Safety in case of fire (fire testing)
  • Hygiene, health & the environment (design)
  • Safety in use (clear usage instructions & risk assessment)
  • Protection against noise (risk assessment)
  • Energy economy & heat retention (environmental performance)
