BSRIA: Are you ready for the mandatory CE Marking in the UK from 1 July 2013?
BSRIA has released a reminder for the forthcoming building services CE Marking standards
“From 1 July 2013 it will be a legal requirement for all building services products covered by the harmonised European standards, to have a CE Mark when sold in the UK.
This is a major change for the industry in the UK where CE marking is currently voluntary.
HVAC products like radiators, flues and chimneys, stoves, high temperature fans and similar products will be subject to mandatory CE marking.
Although there is still time till July 2013, the manufacturers and importers need to act fast to have their products tested and CE Marked to avoid serious implications of non-compliance. Testing when required for CE Marking must be carried out by an independent accredited laboratory with a Notified Body status.
Steve Cadd, Manager of BSRIA Test says: “Compliance is often a challenging business. BSRIA Test is working with the UK manufacturers and overseas importers helping them to understand the requirements and guiding them through the process for CE Marking.”
“For that we have upgraded our test facilities and have maintained UKAS accreditation with a Notified Body status for particular H&V products, giving our customers confidence in their product performance and faster route to compliance.”
