EN 1090 Certification

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.
