As of July 1st 2014 any fabricated steel structural or building that has been designed and manufactured either in the UK or imported for final erection within most European states, must comply with the BS EN 1090-2:2008+A1:2011 in accordance with European law.
With this in mind, Damper Technology Ltd (DTL) is pleased to announce they have achieved registration to BS EN 1090-2:2008+A1:2011.
Requirements for compliance with this code include a specific factory production control system (FPC), welding management system in accordance with ISO 3834 and the ability to demonstrate full traceability for all materials used in the construction, as well as a system to identify all personnel who have worked on a particular construction.
DTL’s participation in registering to this standard has been driven by their commitment to customer requirements as DTL products quite often form part of a chimney stack, and therefore identified as part of a “steel structure”. It will soon be a legal obligation to demonstrate the above requirements as standard.
