Myths About CE Marking – 2

“We’re already covered because we use
CE Marked components”

This is rather like believing that if someone builds a house using CE Markedbricks, the house must automatically be safe; obviously nothing could be further from the truth! Under the Construction Products Regulations (CPR) not only do the components need to be CE Marked, but so does the finished assembly.

This requirement also applies to kits, which are defined as:
“a construction product placed on the market by a single manufacturer as a set of at least two separate components that need to be put together to be incorporated in the construction works”.

The consequences of these and perhaps other misunderstandings relating to the Directive will be dire for any businesses concerned. Don’t bury your head in the sand.
