Ceram Releases CE Marking of Construction Products Video
Ceram has released a video which discusses how they can test products to the relevant standards, thus enabling manufacturers to CE mark their construction products.
As of 01 July 2013, it will become mandatory for manufacturers to apply CE marking to any of their construction products covered by a harmonised European standard (hEN) or European technical assessment (ETA), under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR)*.
Dr Geoff Edgell, Director and Principal Construction Consultant, Ceram, commented:
“There is an extraordinary degree of confusion around the CE marking of construction products in the marketplace at present; this has not been helped by the amount of inaccurate advice available.
“On 01 July, manufacturers will need to focus on the CPR which will be the law and the published harmonised standard(s) applicable to them, in order to legally CE mark their products. Following alternative guidance may lead manufacturers to operate illegally - supplying CE marked products which do not provide customers with the required product characteristics.”
