If you manufacture: steel structures, fire escapes, staircases, balustrades, steel framed buildings or any other structural steel/aluminium products that are permanently placed in a building or structure covered by a Harmonised European Number (hEN) of which the above products are, then the company will be required by law to attain CE Marking by the 1st July 2014.
Companies that buy in lengths of CE marked steel that are then cut, drilled, bent, welded/galvanised into a product, will then become the manufacturer of that product. The onus is on the manufacturer to CE Mark the product
accordingly. TL Safety offer a simple step by step guide approach to getting you the correct CE Certification so you can meet the deadline.
