Supporting CE-Marking Obligations of Our Customers: The Role of the Galvanizer
CE marking simply demonstrates compliance with the appropriate manufacturing standard for a product. The harmonised standard covering fabricated structural steelwork in EN 1090-1 ’Execution of Steel Structures and Aluminium Structures’.
Hot Dip Galvanizing and EN 1090
EN 1090-1 and EN 1090-2 include specific requirements, related to surface treatment and durability that have consequences for the specification and use of hot dip galvanizing as a sub-contract activity.
However, a sub-contractor, without self providing products on the market under his name or trademark, can not be certified to EN 1090-1 by a notified body. (Ref. Boverket, Sweden)
EGGA, European General Galvanizers Association, has published the guidance document “Hot dip galvanizing to EN ISO 1461 and CE marking of structural steelwork to EN 1090", which can be ordered from Nordic Galvanizers by mail: email@example.com
