CE marking: a barrier to reuse?
The ASBP Reusable Buildings Network has identified CE marking as a potential barrier to structural steel reuse. We are meeting with BRE and DCLG on 15th July to discuss further.
We are creating a discussion document on this and there is general consensus that we need the following:
- Clarification on the interpretation of the standards concerning reclaimed structural steel, with paricular regards to EN 1090.
- Inclusion of standards that effectively encourage reuse of steel.
We look forward to our meeting and will keep you updated with any outcomes.
