Experts in achieving UKAS accredited EN 1090 certification

EN 1090 Factory Production Control Systems

The UK “Construction Products Regulations” require all fabricated structural steelwork to be ‘CE marked’. In order to be able to “CE mark” the steelwork, fabricators must implement a factory production control system that meets the requirements of the EN1090 Standard and must be satisfactorily audited by a UKAS accredited Notified Body.

EN 1090 – “Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components”

Hawkstone Consulting provides consultancy to take fabricators through to full UKAS accredited EN 1090 certification. Our experience of EN 1090 factory production control systems ensures that we will guide you along the optimum route to full UKAS accredited certification. We will provide you with a simple factory production control system so that you will obtain the benefit of EN 1090 certification without introducing needless bureaucratic procedures.

Importance of UKAS accredited EN 1090 certification

Within the UK, the CE mark can only be applied to structural steel after EN1090 certification by a UKAS accredited Notified Body. So there is no option to use a non-UKAS body to carry out your factory production control system audit. We can help you find the most suitable, cost effective Notified Body to carry out your audit after we have helped you implement your factory production control system.

EN 1090 -  the Business Case

EN 1090 certification will ensure that you can legally manufacture and sell fabricated structural steel products. So if you want to start manufacture these products or already manufacture them but don’t have EN1090 certification, Hawkstone Consulting can help ensure that you can provide these products and, thereby, help with future growth and success of your business.
