In line with CE marking requirements, which became compulsory on 1st July, Laidlaw has introduced its online Declaration of Performance (DoP) portal, providing direct access to the supporting DoP documents, which declare that qualifying ironmongery products meet the certification criteria.

For every CE marked product that a manufacturer produces, a supporting DoP document must also be available – this document outlines how the product performs in relation to its ‘essential characteristics’. As such, Laidlaw DoP certificates assume responsibility for the conformity of the product with the declared performance. By law, if a DoP certificate cannot be produced, then the CE Mark becomes invalid.

As such, the introduction of the Laidlaw online portal is key – by using the simple search function, users can filter the results by product, which will then show the corresponding DoP document.

Shafiq Sharif, Group Marketing Manager for Laidlaw said: 
“The online ironmongery portal is a fantastic innovation and really helps our customers to stay one step ahead. By allowing direct and immediate access to the DoP documents, the portal can really help to save time whilst providing professionals with everything they need to know.”
