Awarded by – BM Trada

CE Marking (‘Communaute Europeenne’ or 'European Community') was introduced as a requirement on all structural steel products on 1st July 2014. From this date it became illegal to sell fabricated structural steelwork within the UK and Republic of Ireland that did not carry the CE Mark.

The level of certification is divided into four categories and as a steelwork contractor we cannot produce steel in a higher category than certified.

Execution Class 1 – Farm Buildings
Execution Class 2 – Buildings
Execution Class 3 – Bridges
Execution Class 4 – Special structures (e.g. Power Stations)
We are very proud here at Nationwide Structures as we are certified to the highest classification - Execution Class 4.
