We are pleased to advise that with effect from 1st January 2021, all steelwork manufactured by Taunton Fabrications will now be supplied to the UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) marking standard.
Under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), legal obligations are placed on manufacturers, distributors and importers of construction products used within the UK market of GB to UKCA mark their products where they are covered by a UK Designated Standard. This applies not only to constituent products (such as steel beams and bolts etc) but also to fabricated elements and systems made from both UKCA marked and non-UKCA marked products. Similar obligations apply in NI where such products should be CE and UKNI marked.
Further information on the UKCA marking standard can be obtained by downloading the Steel for Life and the British Constructional Steelwork Association's (BCSA) guide.
