Approval to certify to EN1090-1 up to EXC 4

We are delighted to have gained approval this week to certify to EN1090-1 Execution class 4, which means we can now cut and profile steel and aluminium components conforming to nuclear standard.

Since 1st July 2014, the CE Marking of fabricated structural steel and related metal work destined for use within the construction industry became mandatory and a new EU harmonised standard was bought into effect (BS EN 1090-1/A1:2001).

With many of our customers working within the construction industry, we understood the requirement for us to be able to provide CE ready profiles that conform to the BS EN 1090-1 standard. To this end, we underwent extensive auditing and implemented a new Factory Production Control system in order to comply with the new rules set out by the Construction Products Regulation (CPR).

Our conformity to the CPR now allows us to provide thermal cutting / profiling of steel and aluminium components for steel structures in execution class EXC 1 up to EXC 4.
