Help on hand for industrial door companies wanting to meet the CE marking challenge

With compulsory CE marking just weeks away, industrial door companies are invited to attend a roadshow to help them meet their legal obligations.

It is being held by the Door & Hardware Federation, which represents the UK's leading industrial door companies, on Tuesday, February 12th at BRE in Watford, Hertfordshire.

Attendance is free to DHF members. The cost of attendance is £100 per non DHF member which will be waived should delegates join the DHF.

All industrial door makers and suppliers will be legally obliged to CE mark every non-fire industrial and commercial door they place on the market. Failure to do so will be a criminal offence from July 1 this year.

Before a door company can CE mark its products, they must undergo testing in accordance with BS EN 13241-1:2003, implement a factory production control system, and issue Declarations of Performance. DHF member companies are well advanced in putting these procedures into place to ensure compliance with the law from July 1. However, many non member door companies have yet to start the CE marking process.

The DHF has been guiding its members on CE marking ever since the July 1 deadline was first announced. As well as providing technical advice, the federation has been showing its members that CE mark compliance gives them the competitive edge in the market place.

 The first DHF CE marking roadshow on February 12 starts at 10.30 am. It includes practical help on CE marking, how to gain commercial advantage from CE marking, the role played by test labs and certification bodies such as BRE, and the importance of Environmental Product Declarations. Following lunch, delegates can take the opportunity of a tour of BRE’s testing facilities.
