EN 1090 is a harmonized standard that determines the requirements for the evaluation of conformity of structural steel and aluminum.
EN 1090 consists of 3 parts:
- EN 1090-1: Requirements for conformity assessment for structural components (CE marking)
- EN 1090-2: Technical requirements for the execution of steel structures
- EN 1090-3: Technical requirements for the execution of aluminum structures
Since 01-07-2013 all construction products commercialized in the European market must comply with Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and be CE marked.
All companies with selling activities in the European Union must comply with EN 1090-1 and certify their production facility with a Factory Production Control (FPC) system.
