EPS now accredited to BS EN 1090

EPS is now pleased to offer CE marking to its structural steel to comply with BS EN 1090.

Since July 2014, structural steelwork and aluminium fall under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), which means aluminium or structural steel CE marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1 (the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork).

Many of our clients have asked us to undertake steelwork projects to comply with 1090 in the hope of minimising the subcontracts they look to offer. As a result EPS decided develop our Factory production Control System to ensure compliance with 1090. We are now accredited to execution class 2 having recently been approved by industry leads BSI.
Lee Murphy said “part of our continued commitment to quality we are pleased we now have accredited status through BSI to offer CE marking on our structural steel. Not only does this accreditation demonstrate our commitment to quality but also means our customers can place orders with confidence and rationalise their procurement process for getting fabrication works completed”.
