GAI

Request for door hardware experts’ input into the future of CE marking

  • 22 Oct 2018

The status of CE marking on construction products in Europe is to be considered as part of a review of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), where the GAI will produce a response.

The CPR is periodically reviewed and as part of this, a revision of Mandate M101 for doors, windows and construction hardware is due.

The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) will produce its response on behalf of the ironmongery industry, and is asking fordoor hardware professionals to participate in a short survey.

The results will be shared with BSI Committee B538/4 and ultimately with CEN Committees in Europe.

The survey asks for both GAI and Institute of Architectural Ironmongers (IAI) members’ opinions in relation to this topic, including which existing harmonised standards should remain under the CPR, as well as their opinion on the necessity of CE marking of product relating to fire and escape doors.

Douglas Masterson, technical manager of the GAI (pictured), commented: “Any change to Mandate M101 is likely to have an impact on CE marking and harmonisation of products within the ironmongery industry.

“This survey is an opportunity for our membership to have an input and to help influence any significant decisions being made on an area of huge importance to our sector.”

Members have the opportunity to provide input into the final submission to the BSI Committee B538/4 until Friday 2 November.

For more details on this survey, contact Douglas Masterson via email – [email protected]
