Certification according to EN 1090

Eurofins Qualitech is the right partner for your company on the way to the operational introduction of the EN 1090 ff series of standards. The estimation of the effort for a certification of the WPK depends on the operational requirements.

We offer support

All manufacturers of steel and aluminium load-bearing components must adapt to the new EN 1090 et seq. With the newly applicable standard, a set of technical regulations has been created which is accepted throughout Europe and Switzerland as a bilateral contractual partner. Components manufactured according to EN 1090 ff must be marked with the CE mark. The prerequisite for this is a certified factory production control (WPK) with requirements for personnel, processes and equipment.

Significance for your own company

At this point, many manufacturers will ask themselves which areas must be considered. Example: The proper production of a staircase requires the ordering of the construction materials with the appropriate certificate.
