New CE Marking Laws – Is Your Business Up To Date?

As a business owner, you know that it is essential to keep up to date with the latest changes in laws and regulations. Doing so will not only help your business be more compliant (and therefore more productive), but in many cases, it will also help you increase the security of your premises.

It is very likely that you have heard about the new CE marking regulations, but what do they exactly entail and how can you make sure that you comply with them? In this article you will find an overview of these new regulations.

New CE marking laws: What Are They?

Since they were first implemented in 1993, CE marking laws have been setting the quality standards of several kinds of products used within the European Union. Regardless of where in the world they were manufactured, products that come into this region must comply with strict safety, environmental, and health standards.

As of 1st July 2013, new CE markings will apply to construction products. Prior to this date, the marking of construction products (such as doors and windows) in accordance with European standards was voluntary. However, it is now compulsory to mark them with labels that specify their type, their conformity with the relevant EN standards, their intended use, and technical details such as load bearing capacity.

What Do The New Regulations Mean To My Business?

The new CE regulations mean that the doors and windows used in commercial properties are safer and more secure. They also mean that end users will have easy access to important information about the product they are purchasing. It does also mean that any industrial doors that you do purchase must meet the CE marking regulations – there is some onus on your business, too.

What You Can Do To Ensure Compliance

If you use industrial doors or windows in your commercial premises, make sure that they are up to scratch and conform to the new European quality standards. Every time you put through an order for new doors, shutters, or windows, check that the manufacturer is in full compliance with the new CE marking laws and that their products clearly display the labels.
