CE Marked Fasteners
CPR (Construction Products Regulation) has become mandatory law in all EU member states including the UK and RoI from the 1st of July 2013. This document is the base for CE marking of fasteners.
This European regulation replaced the Construction Products Directive (CPD) and affects all construction products covered by a harmonized standard or ETA (European Technical Assessment). Non-preload bolting assemblies have to be supplied in accordance with EN 15048-1 and preload bolting assemblies in accordance with EN 14399-1 in order to adhere to the CE marking requirements. Assemblies need to be labelled in accordance with standard and regulatory requirements and supplied with the required documentation (DOP).
Customers have to ensure that construction products covered by a harmonised standard or a European Technical Assessment (ETA) are purchased to these standards or ETA’s and that they are properly CE marked.
Non-preload bolting assemblies have to comply with EN 15048. For dimensional requirements the relevant product standards should be used (ISO 4017, ISO 4014, ISO 4032, ISO 7091, ISO 7090, or ISO 7098, etc.). More information can be found on the relevant page.
Preload bolt assemblies must comply with EN 14399.
Preload bolt assemblies – System HR needs to comply to EN 14399 Part 3, HR Nuts to EN 14399-3 and Washers to Part 5 or Part 6, depending on usage. Additionally, when supplied with Direct Tension Indicators Washers (DTI) need to comply with Part 9 together with Nut Face Washers and Bolt Face washers. There are also, HR Countersunk bolts to Part 7.

All CE bolt assemblies need to be Assembly tested (EN 15048) or Suitability tested (EN 14399) and be supplied to end customer with CE label and Declaration of Performance (DOP).
The BCSA has produced a CE marking supplement, a very useful guide to CE marking.
This CE marking supplement contains information on CE marking of products and of fabricated structural steelwork and also on what is needed to comply with the Construction Products Regulation (CPR).
