CE marking of fabricated structural steelwork under the Construction Products Regulation

Here is a great video explaining about CE marking of fabricated structural steelwork under the Construction Products Regulation (305/2011). The video is also supported by a information rich “encyclopedia”: https://www.steelconstruction.info/CE_marking. Although the information aims at the UK industry, most of it applies to any company that intends to make available fabricated structural steelwork in the European Union.

Fabricated Structural Steelwork and the Engineers’ Responsibility


In order to obtain an eligible end product, there are several steps that must be followed by the different participants of the entire proceeding: starting with the construction phase and ending with placing the product on the market. In this article, we will focus on the responsibilities an engineer is subject to.

The engineer should pursue the BS EN 1090-2 (the Technical Requirements for Steel Structures) requirements and specify the Execution Class for the structure as a whole, the components, and the details. It is essential to note that in some cases, the components and details may have distinctive features. Thus, they have to be mentioned accordingly and separately.
