Technical Literature Updated with CE Mark
Our technical literature has been updated to highlight the products that now carry CE Marking under the Construction Products Regulation.
The new Ancon publications, which can now be downloaded here, or are available in hard copy on request, are ‘Wall Ties and Restraint Fixings‘, ‘Masonry Support Systems and Lintels’, ‘Windposts and Parapet Posts’ and ‘Tension and Compression Systems’.
As well as providing an introduction to the new regulation, the updated literature uses the CE logo throughout to help readers identify immediately those products designed, tested and manufactured to a harmonised European Standard or European Technical Approval. This mark provides reassurance that the products can be legally sold in the UK and throughout the wider EEA community.
To further assist engineers, contractors and distributors to comply with the new regulation, which became law on 1st July 2013, Ancon has also published a comprehensive 12-page guide entitled ‘CE Marking to the CPR’ which is available to download from this page. This booklet summarises the products affected and the obligations throughout the supply chain.
Ancon’s Marketing Manager, Annabelle Wilson, said,
Ancon’s initial focus was on ensuring compliance with the new Construction Products Regulation. Having completed all necessary product testing and successfully passing external audits of our design and manufacturing processes, our focus has now switched to ensuring that all the product and performance information needed to select our CPR-compliant products is readily available.
We have undertaken a complete review of our technical literature in line with Eurocode design methods, harmonised European product standards and the EU Construction Products Regulation.
Construction industry remains open. Manufacturing at Leviat continues through latest national lockdown.
The health, safety and wellbeing of all those who work with us and for us, as well as the general public, is always our No. 1 priority.
From January 1st 2021, the UK will recognise both the EU CE marking approvals, for a time limited period, and the new UK based approval system, which will be known as the UKCA mark. The EU will only recognise CE marking by EU notified bodies as proof of efficacy moving forwards. Leviat has been working closely with both EU notified and UK approved bodies to ensure compliance is achieved at the earliest possible opportunity and we can confirm that we have obtained all relevant certification.
