CE Marking is a legal requirement that comes into force at the beginning of July 2013. As CE Marking of doors and windows includes safety testing, if something goes wrong those liable could be faced with fines and/or imprisonment.
The law affects any company that brings a finished product to market. “Synseal will be affected by this new law because we bring to market fully manufactured specialist products such as Evolve VS windows and bi-folding doors,” explained David Leng, Synseal’s chief executive. “We will be making sure that all our products are CE Marked in time for the July, 2013 deadline.
“However, the majority of our customers are also affected. While Synseal cannot undertake the CE Marking process for them, we can offer practical support, and these workshops are one such way we can help.”
Build Check, which offers certification services to the fenestration industry, is on the front line when it comes to CE Marking and has been presenting to Synseal customers at the workshops. They are also booked in for the next series of events early ins 2013.
“The response from Synseal’s customers has been fantastic,” said Build Check’s Richard Bate. “Not only were delegates learning something new, they were having some great discussions.
“Becoming CE Marked is not a difficult process, and we have the tools to do it simply and cost effectively. Synseal customers are in a great position because Synseal has worked closely with Build Check to ensure that all the relevant technical details are readily accessible – which makes the process even easier.”
