“Many installers and fabricators are only just finding out that changes are on the way,” says Richard Bate, Build Check’s Technical Director. “All window and door fabricators and installers will need to check they’re covered because the changes are likely to affect all companies, even those who already have CE Marks for products.
“Companies can check how they can comply with the new regulations by using the CE Marking Quick Guide at www.buildcheck.co.uk/ce
“Build Check Publications has expanded its Oracle with all the resources required to help companies comply with the changes to CE Marking. In addition a new acoustic calculator is shortly to be launched to calculate the acoustic properties of windows.
“Fabricators and installers want to keep within the law, but it’s important they can do this without spending too much time and money. The Oracle can help them achieve and maintain CE markings from as little as £8 a week. To start there’s a simple checklist to see what aspects of the CE Mark legislation affect individual companies. Then there are easy to use downloads and templates.
“We have been working with many fabricators and installers to develop a DIY approach.” Richard continues: “Creating this new system on the Oracle gives fabricators and installers a simple 5 step process to comply with the new legislation.”
