Visqueen Introduction to CE Marking

  1. 1. An introduction to CE Marking
  2. 2. CE marking was introduced to the construction industry via the Construction Products Directive (CPD). CE marking is designed to produce a consistent method of declaration of a product’s properties and performance, through a harmonised approach to manufacture, testing and assessment, using harmonised European standards. CE Marking – what is it?
  3. 3. CPR = Law From 1st July 2014 it is mandatory for all construction products sold in the EU and covered by a Harmonised European Standard (hEN) to hold a CE mark. This is EU law for all member states.
  4. 4. Harmonised European Standards (hEN) A harmonised European Standard is a standard that contains the criteria for CE marking a product. Examples of hENs are: - Damp Proof Courses - Damp Proof Membranes - Tanking Membranes - Vapour Control Layers
  5. 5. What does a manufacturer have to do to obtain a CE Mark? In order to comply with CE marking requirements by law a manufacturer must be able to provide the following: - Declaration of Performance (DoP) - Product conformity test results to hEN criteria - EC Certificate of Factory Production Control (FPC) - CE mark including relevant EN Number displayed on product packaging
  6. 6. What if no HEN exists? Certain types of construction product may not be covered by harmonised European Standards. However, CE marking can still be obtained for these products on a voluntary basis via a European Technical Approval (ETA) 3rd party certification exists where the product adds value to an existing hEN i.e. BBA certifications for Gas Membranes
  7. 7. Key dates Deadline for CE marking - 1st June 2013. Visqueen achieved CE marking across our structural waterproofing & gas protection range on 1st May 2013. You can download our CE mark documentation from the Visqueen website
