Since the adoption of Eurocode 3/EN 1993 in Structural Steel Design has been mandated by Singapore Building Construction Authority, it is become natural that the fabrication of the structural steel will need to be regulated within the same control framework.
In Europe, under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), it has become mandatory for products sold on the EU construction market to have CE marking for structural steel to BS EN 1090-1. To achieve CE certification, manufacturers, contractors and fabricators will need to demonstrate compliance to BS EN 1090-1: 2009 + A1:2011 Execution of steel structures and aluminium structures part 1 – Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components.
In Singapore, the work of harmonization is currently ongoing. The Singapore Accreditation council and its working committee has been working on the local requirement, in line with the full adoption of BS EN 1090 into Singapore Standard (SS EN 1090).
Supported by Exova BM Trada, which has extensive experience on the CE marking for structural steel to BS EN 1090-1, Admaterials Technologies are prepared to participate in the pilot project program initiated by the Singapore Accreditation Council.
