CE marking

/media/product_groups_pages/library/ce-mark.jpgIn July 2013, it became a criminal offence to place a construction product on the market without a CE mark if it is covered by a harmonised standard. This includes all industrial doors (except for fire resisting doors).

Manufacturers of non-fire industrial doors must apply the CE mark on their products because they are covered by a harmonised standard under the Construction Products Regulation.

To ensure compliance, all dhf Industrial Door Group manufacturing members:

  • Carry out all necessary testing of non-fire products in accordance with BS EN 13241-1:2003+A1:2011
  • Implement a factory production control system as required by the standard
  • Ensure availability of Declarations of Performance for all non-fire doors and applied the CE mark

It is vital that specifiers choose CE marked products from dhf members. Why?

  • peace of mind that the product has been checked to ensure it complies with health and safety and environmental regulations.
  • no need for specifier to check compliance (but a check still needs to be made to ensure it complies with Building Regulations).
  • no need for specifier to carry out risk assessments (but the building owner or user will still have to carry out risk assessment).

Choosing a CE marked product from a dhf member company means that the CE mark is evidence of compliance relating to product safety under health and safety legislation - and so It helps protect the architect’s or specifier’s client against litigation in the event of an accident occurring.

Note:  A “manufacturing member” includes someone marketing a product under his own brand or trademark which has been manufactured by someone else or an installer if they have put together a complete product by means of various components.
