The UK ceasing to be a member of the EU on 1st January 2021 has resulted in changes being made to the regulation and marking of construction products in the UK, as the NARM has explained here…
Responding to this change, NARM, the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers, has updated its guidance document NTD07 covering construction products regulation.
The new document, NTD07.1 Construction Products Regulation, NARM update January 2021, provides detailed information on post-Brexit regulation.
– Full details of the UK Conformity Assessed (UKCA) mark: the new GB product marking used for goods being placed on the market in England, Scotland and Wales, which replaces the CE mark – and the CE or CE and UK(NI) mark for Northern Ireland.
– Explanations of all product and material standards hENs (now known as UK Designated Standards) that are relevant to rooflights and roof windows along with their current status.
– Specific information relating to glass rooflights which are not subject to hENs/UK Designated Standards.
The document, which will be an interesting read for rooflight specifiers, as well as suppliers of rooflights, can be downloaded for free by clicking the link.
For further information, please contact NARM using the contact details on our website, where you will be directed to the appropriate person.
