Standard UNI EN 1090-1: 2009 “Execution of steel and aluminium structures Part 1: Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components” defines the CE Marking requirements of steel or aluminium work for structural use.
Since 1 July 2014 has mandatory application.
Standard UNI EN 1090-1, which has “harmonised” standard status, implies that companies constructing steel or aluminium structures apply a factory production control system (FPC) which must undergo audits by a Notified Body in order to be authorised for CE Marking.
The degrees of the FPC system requirements, based on the applicable conformity certification method chosen by the manufacturer, and on structure criticality, is defined by standard UNI EN 1090-2, for the construction of steel structures, and by standard UNI EN 1090-3 for the construction of aluminium structures, respectively.
THE PROCEDURE FOR ISSUING AUTHORISATION FOR CE MARKING ACCORDING TO STANDARD UNI EN 1090-1:2009
From the operative standpoint, the procedure involves an adequacy review of the system implemented by the manufacturer, with the analysis of the documents prepared to meet the standard requirements, completed by an audit in order to ensure the established requisites have been adequately met.
