PRESS RELEASE: Carl C. A/S may now CE-mark its steel structures
Carl C. A/S is one of the first companies in Denmark to be certified to the new European standard EN 1090-1, and at the highest level EXC4.
New European rules mean that all companies covered by the Construction Products Directive must comply with CE-marking pursuant to EN 1090-1 from 1 July 2014.
Sean Aggenem, QHSE Manager, Carl C. A/S, states:
“We were certified already in December 2013. This gave us six months to trim and streamline our system so we can live up to the new requirements pursuant to EN 1090-1, CE-marking of steel components, as efficiently as possible.
We are already certified to ISO 9001 and ISO 3834-2, whereby our company has complied with most of the requirements of EN 1090-1 for a number of years. Even so, there was quite a lot of work involved with implementing the new system.”
Sean Aggenem adds: “We’re pleased with the system and also note that our customers are increasingly demanding that we conform to the system's requirements. So it was a very natural step for us to be certified today.”
EN 1090-1 is a quality and implementation standard that stipulates requirements for the quality management process in the design phase. In addition, a large number of requirements are stipulated for the production process, which is controlled by the welding norm EN ISO 3834-2, among others.
Carl C. A/S is a certified special factory in the design and manufacture of lattice towers that are used for telecommunications, meteorological measurements, high voltage and floodlights. Carl C. carries out tasks for telecom companies, the wind turbine industry and power plants around the world every day.
