CENSolutions is widely recognised as the leading consultancy and test facility for the window, door and glazing industries, and as well as supporting some window industry specific events in recent months, the company has also been very busy in Harrogate at the Trading Standards Institute Conference.
Mike Gaillard explains: “We have been working closely with Trading Standards for some time now, helping to educate their officers on CE Marking and the lack of compliance to date, but we had enquiries from over 60 Officers and other trade organisations on this very topic.
“We took our easy to use series of checklists of what CE Marking requires within the Fenestration Industry to the show and they proved extremely popular. Since it became a legal requirement in July 2013, only a minority of window, insulating glass sealed unit and toughened glass companies have implemented CE Marking. Trading Standards are already investigating a couple of companies who were reported to them as not being CE Marked and as part of the process contacted CENSolutions for more information.
“We supported the companies that put in the effort to achieve CE Marking in time for the new legislation last year, but we want to continue to support them for doing the right thing. Offering more information to the people involved in policing CE Marking is another way we can do just that.”
