South West Engineering and Fabrications are fully certified to conduct CE marking and provide traceability.
For structural steel fabrication, all engineers, main contractors and steelwork contractors need to ensure that every component used for a project complies with the requirements of BS EN 1090-1 (Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures).
Companies need to establish a system called Factory Production Control (FPC). This system monitors everything from the first contact with a customer, right through to the final inspection before shipping. After putting the FPC in place, a third party, known as a Notified Inspection Body (NIB) must certify the FPC. These must be accredited by United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)
Additionally, BS EN 1090-1 requires that welding personnel are suitably qualified and procedures are used for all welding activities.
