CE Marking of Structural Steelwork to an Execution Class
Construction products which fall within the scope of a harmonised European Standard should now carry CE marking under the EU Construction Products Regulation.
For masonry support systems, windposts and other fabricated structural steel components, the harmonised standard is BS EN 1090-1 Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures: Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components.
Stainless Steel Fixings Limited complies with all CE marking requirements of this Standard and has had this confirmed by external certification of its factory production controls by an approved body.
A fundamental requirement of CE marking to BS EN 1090 is the implementation of an appropriate Welding Quality Management System (WQMS) to BS EN ISO 3834. Expert auditors from ISOQAR Ltd have approved the suitability of Stainless Steel Fixings Ltd WQMS to Part 3 of ISO 3834 and certified the business accordingly to undertake welded fabrication work up to Execution Class 2 (EXC2).
Although each project should be considered individually, EXC2 will be appropriate for the majority of buildings constructed in the UK and is the default class when unspecified (EN 1090-2 Clause 4.1.2).

Stainless Steel Fixings Ltd product portfolio, where required, complies with CE marking requirements and a Declaration of Performance is available to download below.
