EN 1090 Certification for steel or aluminium structural components

Structural components in steel and aluminium that will be placed on the European market as construction products must carry CE marking. This certification complies with the EN 1090-1 standard "Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures - Part 1: Requirements for the conformity assessment of structural components".

On March 9, 2011, the European Parliament and the European Council issued a Regulation establishing the conditions for the marketing and sale of construction products. This Regulation has been wholly applicable since 1 July 2013 and repeals European Directive 89/106/EEC.

It regulates the conditions for the emission and sale of construction products on the market and establishes:

  • harmonized provisions for describing the performance of these products in relation to their essential characteristics and for using the CE marking on the products in question;
  • the manufacturer’s obligation to draw up a Declaration of Performance (DoP) accompanying any product to which the Regulation applies, a requirement that was not part of the previous European Directive 89/106/EEC;
  • Five systems of assessment and verification of constancy of performance: 1+, 1, 2+, 3 and 4.

The applicable system is indicated in the harmonized technical standards according to the type of product, its complexity, and its intended use; for example: reaction to fire, supporting structures for civil constructions, etc.
