BS EN 1090 - Structural steel and aluminium

BS EN 1090 for structural steel and aluminium is a requirement for products to be sold in Europe, and any organizations who design and/or manufacture steel or aluminium components must adhere to this standard.

Whether in the form of steel frames or metal roofing, any structural engineers, component manufacturers, and anyone with a hand in the steel or aluminium based components that go into metal buildings/building work, should be aware of this.

Here at BSI we can provide various testing and certification services to help you get your products to market.


CE/UKCA marking to BS EN 1090 is a legal requirement

Since July 2014, and UKCA marking from January 1st 2022, structural steelwork and aluminium fall under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), which means aluminium or structural steel CE/UKCA marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1 (the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork).

This covers any structural component that has been designed and fabricated to meet the BS EN 1991 series of standards (Eurocode 3 and 9) for steel and aluminium structures in buildings. And you now need to show that they comply with BS EN 1090-1. As a Notified Body, we can help you to achieve this and with CE/UKCA marking steel or aluminium products.
