What are the advantages of EN 1090 certification and CE marking?
Companies supplying structural steel and aluminium components in the EU after 1 July 2014 must be EN 1090-1 certified and implement CE marking for their products to ensure compliance with the ECPD. It will be an offence to supply products after this date unless they comply with this standard and carry a legitimate CE mark, and trading standards will be empowered to force companies to recall and withdraw products that do not comply.

What is a performance class?
Execution class was introduced in the EN 1090-2 and EN 1090-3 manufacturing standards, where it is used to define a set of quality controls and ensure the manufacturing process. There are four performance classes, ranging from performance class EXC 1, which gives the lowest set of controls, to performance class EXC 4, which provides a higher, more stringent set of controls.
