CE Marking - SWS UK Have Got it Covered

Compulsory CE marking is almost here. From the 1st July all manufacturers will be legally obliged to CE mark every garage door, gate, non-fire industrial and commercial door they supply. From this date it will be illegal to supply products covered by a harmonised European standard without a CE Mark.

New Legislation

Under the old Construction Products Directive CE Marking was a voluntary requirement. From the 1st July this legislation will be replaced with the Construction Products Regulation where CE marking will be mandatory for all UK door manufacturers.
A spokesperson from SWS UK commented:

"Here at SWS UK we have been CE marking our products since 2005 and have now adapted our procedures to ensure we comply with the new Construction Products Regulation. This means you can rest assured that all products purchased from SWS UK meet all legal requirements just as they always have.

"Our previously issued declarations of conformity are now replaced by declarations of performance. These are available on request in either a printed or digital format.
"The CE labels that we attach to the products we manufacture have also been updated in line with the requirements of CPR".

A word of caution:
If you rebrand any of the products you receive from SWS under your own product names or modify any of the products you receive, these will not be covered by SWS declarations of performance or the CE label attached to the product. For these affected products you will need to create your own CE labels for the products.

You are authorised to use this information in your CE marking process, to cascade the SWS initial type testing results and for SWS declarations of performance to be incorporated into your technical files.
