From July 2013 it will be mandatory in the UK for building products to comply with CE Marking requirements when the current Construction Products Directive is replaced by the Construction Products Regulation. Most external windows and doorsets will need CE Marking and it’s the responsibly of installers, fabricators and suppliers to comply.
Compliance is already a legal requirement for manufacturers to place their products on the market in some EC countries. From July 2013 manufacturers wishing to export to any Member State will be required to meet the regulations and their products bear the CE mark.
