CE Mark Execution Class 4 Has Raised The Bar

The CE Mark for Structural Steelwork is now mandatory.  Given the stringent demands of the standard, this especially for the higher execution classification, mind we believe this requirement really will separate the men from the boys.A fundamental requirement of CE marking to BS EN 1090 is the implementation of an appropriate Welding Quality Management System (WQMS) to BS EN ISO 3834 Part 2 which we have in place.  DMG have invested heavily in the systems, processes, equipment and training that are essential to not just meet the basic requirements of this standard but, given our involvement in Rail and Energy sector projects, we have implemented the highest level classification, that is Execution Class 4 (EXC4).  DMG complies with all CE marking requirements of this Standard, including designs to BS EN 1993 (Euro code 3) .As stated in the specialist press; as of 1st July 2014 it is a criminal offence for contractors to ignore this standard and to do so would also risk invalidating project insurance and warranties.
