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:

  1. Clarification on the interpretation of the standards concerning reclaimed structural steel, with paricular regards to EN 1090.
  2. Inclusion of standards that effectively encourage reuse of steel.

We look forward to our meeting and will keep you updated with any outcomes.
