CE Marking Structural Steel

Pace produce a wide range of structural steel to the CE Mark standard, BS EN 1090:1+2 / ISO 3834.

Trusted Partner

We aim to become a trusted partner for our clients, by making sure all our structural steel projects are on time, on budget, and to a very high standard. We were one of the first contractors in Essex to attain the CE Mark for structural steel.

BS EN 1090:1+2

All structural steel must be CE marked to show it's compliance with British Standard BS EN 1090:1+2 which is equivalent to the international ISO 3834 standard. It is entitled “Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures.”

There's more about BS EN 1090 here and the full document may be purchased here.

Pace is certified to Execution Class 2 ("EXC2") which covers a wide range of structural steel requirements.

Factory Production Control System

Our CE Mark certification demonstrates that Pace has a fully operational Factory Production Control system ("FPC") in place for structural steel fabrication work, and that the FPC has been assessed and approved by a suitable certification body

Execution Class 2

Execution Class 2 is appropriate for the vast majority of buildings constructed in the UK, except the very largest. It is usually appropriate for:

  • Office blocks up to 15 floors
  • Residential buildings, including hotels and appartments, up to 15 floors
  • Educational buildings up to 15 floors
  • Car parks up to 6 floors
  • Hospital buildings up to 3 floors

Why CE Marking for Structural Steel?

Structural steel is safety critical, and the consequences of a failure could be devastating. CE Marking ensures that all structural steel has been produced to an appropriate and safe standard.

Structural Steel Legal Requirements

On 1st July 2014 it became a legal requirement that all structural steel carries a CE Mark to show that it is produced according to a verified Factory Production Control system.

This requirement will remain in place after the UK leaves the EU.

About CE Marking

CE marking indicates that a product meets the relevant EU standards.  These standards are consistent across all EU countries, plus the countries outside the EU which belong to the single market. Therefore a CE Mark product can be sold in all EU and Single Market countries without any further certification.
