Leading profile manufacturer, Profile 22 has launched a comprehensive guide to help fabricators and installers comply with new CE marking regulations coming into force in 2013.
From 1st July next year, the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) will make it mandatory for UK manufacturers of construction products to apply CE marking to any of their products that are covered by a harmonised standard (hEN).
Profile 22’s new guide explains what CE marking is and why it is important. It comprises step by step instructions to help steer fabricators and installers through the CE marking process, from determination of product type, through verification of product performance, to self certification.
Lawson Price, Technical Sales Manager for Profile 22, said: “The construction industry is facing the most significant change for a decade in the way in which construction products are to be sold. Profile 22 is eager to implement the necessary steps to getting it right, well before the stated deadline of 1st July 2013.
“The first step is launching this ‘Essential Guide to CE Marking’ to help identify what is specifically required to meet the new requirements of the CPR. We are also aware that supplying a CE marked product will be a requirement for companies wishing to participate in the Green Deal, which is being launched early next year, so again, it’s important we all look to act now and get ahead of the game.”
