UNI EN 1090-1:2009-A1:2011

CE marking of steel structures

The standard specifies the requirements for the conformity assessment of performance characteristics of steel and aluminum structural components as well as kits placed on the market as building products.

The implementation of the current UNI EN 1090 Standard Project as a harmonized standard for product CE marking related to CPD Directive 89/106 / EC is the future for structural steel structural carpenters, anyone without any exclusion to market Italian or European structural steel products is obliged to provide CE marking according to this standard!

For the serial products falling within the scope of European harmonized standard EN 1090-1, the aforementioned CE marking also provides for the qualification of the product in accordance with § 11.1, case A DM 14.01.2008.Therefore, the manufacturer of structural steel carpentry items, if they have CE marking for these products on the basis of EN 1090-1, does not require the certificate of filing of the documentation as a metal-processing transformation center issued pursuant to §§ and of DM 14.01.2008.

The harmonized EC 1-2011 UNI EN 1090-1: 2009 "Execution of steel and aluminum structures Part 1: Requirements for the conformity assessment of structural components" provides precisely the requirements for the CE marking according to Directive 89 / 106 / EEC and European Reg. 305/2011. According to UNI EN 1090-1, companies that manufacture structures or parts of them, whether in steel or aluminum, must introduce a production control (FPC) compliant with UNI EN ISO 3834, to be subject to verification by a notified body issuing the Certificate of Conformity.


With satisfaction and pride, our organization has submitted its (FPC) certification to the certification body (RINA) by obtaining certification for the construction of steel structural components in EXC-3 execution class for household materials 1.1 (≤S275) and 1.2 (S355) UNI CE ISO / TR 15608

This CE mark is a declaration of conformity by which the manufacturer declares that he has supplied the product in accordance with the specifications described in his declaration, this declaration must be accepted throughout the European Union and the authorities concerned may not require any other requirements for product construction. EN 1090-1 indicates the requirements of which the CE declaration of conformity - conforms to the CE mark - must be complied with and what the declaration must state. EN 1090-1 does not contain rules governing structural design and construction calculations. Design and calculation standards are set out in the respective sections of the Eurocode, while construction requirements are in EN 1090-2 EN 1090-3.

For the technical execution of the requirements for CE marking structures, EN 1090-1 refers significantly to EN 1090-2 for the construction of steel structures and EN 1090-3 for the construction of structures in aluminum. Requirements for all types of structures are defined according to a single standard, whether it is a simple roof of a large building or a static load beam of a dynamic rail load bridge.
