CE Marking of Fire Resisting Doorsets

News: CE Marking of Fire Resisting Doorsets

Product standard EN 16034 has been published and so it will soon be possible for manufacturers of fire resisting doorsets to CE Mark their products. Doorsets will be able to be CE Marked from the date of publication of EN 16034 in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU); this is anticipated to be mid-2015.

The CE Marking of all construction products is mandatory under European Regulation 305/2011 (Construction Product Regulation) for all products for which there is a harmonised product standard. When the citation of EN 16034 appears CE Marking of doorsets will still be optional, and will only become mandatory at the end of a yet to be defined transition period, which will be included in the publication in the OJEU. The transition period will be between one and five years.

Under EN 16034 only configurations defined as ‘doorsets’ are able to be CE Marked. The definition and requirements of doorsets as defined for the purpose of CE Marking is complex and the Notified Certification Body (NCB) should be consulted regarding your particular situation. A NCB can start the process of attesting conformity of doorsets now and this is advised given the likely pressure on testing facilities.
