Swish Window and Door Systems has launched a comprehensive guide to help fabricators 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 hEN (harmonised European Norms).
Swish’s new guide explains what CE marking is and why it is necessary. It comprises step by step instructions to help steer window and door fabricators through the CE marking process, from determination of product type, through verification of product performance, to self certification.
Colin Stevens, Divisional Compliance Manager for Swish, said: “The new CE marking regulations are likely to affect all manufacturers of construction products, even those who already CE mark their products. We’ve launched this ‘Essential Guide to CE Marking’ so that window and door fabricators can easily check if they meet the requirements of the CPR, and if not, then put the necessary steps into place before the deadline.
“Supplying a CE marked product will also be a requirement for companies wishing to participate in the Green Deal, which is being launched early next year, so it’s important to act now and get ahead of the game.”
