CE Marking of Structural Components in Steel and Aluminum in accordance with EN 1090-1

The scope of application of EN 1090-1 “Execution of steel and aluminum structures – Part 1: Requirements for the assessment of structural components” is very broad and includes steel and aluminum components used in various types of structures: warehouses, frames for residential or office buildings, steel and concrete bridges, viaducts, lattice structures, stadiums, and large exhibition spaces.

Services Offered

International Weld is a Notified Body No. 2620 for carrying out conformity assessment activities under EU Regulation 305/2011 (CPR – Construction Product Regulation) related to metallic structural components in accordance with the harmonized standard EN 1090-1.

Certification Process

The certification process involves the following steps:

1. Acceptance of the economic offer;

2. Submission of the certification application;

3. Document examination;

4. Initial inspection of the production facility and factory production control;

5. Certification issuance;

6. Continuous surveillance, assessment, and verification of the factory production control.

The process for affixing the CE Mark on a product varies depending on the type and intended use.

In general, the Manufacturer is required to implement a Factory Production Control (FPC) System and perform tests in accordance with the relevant Harmonized Standard. The conformity of this Factory Production Control system must then be certified by a Notified Body. At the end of this process, the Manufacturer can affix the CE Mark on the product.

The basis of CE Marking under EN 1090-1 consists of:

These elements can be used directly in works or incorporated into them after assembly.

Additional Information

Application opportunities

The standard applies to both mass production and non-mass production. Therefore, to differentiate technical requirements based on component complexity, the standard introduces four execution classes, with progressively more stringent technical requirements.

As specified in EN 1090 Parts 2 and 3, organizations producing welded structures, or parts thereof, in steel or aluminum must carry out these activities in accordance with the relevant parts of the UNI EN ISO 3834 series.

Welding Special Process

Welding is the most commonly used special process for products produced according to EN 1090-1.

In particular, Chapter 7 of EN 1090-2 (in the case of steel structures) specifies how to demonstrate this compliance, namely through the Qualification of Welding Procedures, Welders, and Operators. International Weld is a Third-Party Body for the certification of the welding process.
