The Construction Products Directive (CPD) of 1989 was conceived in order to provide a common framework across the whole of the European Union to ensure the integrity of buildings and construction works. Because fabricated steel components are deemed “safety critical”, if you are involved in the manufacture or supply of these products then under the CPD it is now a legal requirement for you to adhere to the stringent requirements of BS EN 1090. You must also ensure that your products are appropriately CE marked.
ISO 3834 Information.
ISO 3834, Quality Requirements for Fusion Welding of Metallic Materials, the specification demonstrates what is regarded as best practice with regard to the control of welding and its associated activities. Not being a mandatory specification it has, to a large extent, been ignored by welding fabricators who have adopted the attitude that they will implement the requirements when they have to. That point has now been reached for many companies with the publication of the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) and a number of related specifications that reference ISO 3834 and will therefore directly affect the structural steel industry.
