What is EN 1090?

EN 1090 is a series of agreed European Standards for organisations involved in the supply of and manufacture of structural components and steelwork. In summary the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) requires that all products carry a legitimate CE Marking when the products are placed on the market; the EN 1090 is the structural steel element of the CPR.
