Thursday 14th June 2012
10.00 - 13.45
EEF Broomgrove, 59 Clarkehouse Road, Sheffield S10 2LE
The BSSA together with TWI is hosting a seminar to look at the impact of the Construction Products Regulation and ISO 3834 quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials:
The Construction Products Regulation and ISO 3834 – “Are these barriers or benefits to trade?”
CPR and CE Marking – “Why and when?”
Ian Hogarth, Compliance Verification Engineer, TWI Certification Ltd
The Construction Products Regulation (305/2011/EU - CPR) was adopted on 9 March 2011 and replaced the Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC – CPD) . The UK Construction Products Regulations take effect from mid-2013.
• Construction Products Regulation (the CPR) is to ensure reliable information on construction products in relation to their performances. This is achieved by providing a “common technical language", offering uniform assessment methods of the performance of construction products.
• The removal of technical barriers in the field of construction may only be achieved by the establishment of harmonised technical specifications for the purposes of assessing the performance of construction products.
ISO 3834 – “A special process requires special competence”
Chris Eady, Chief Executive, TWI Certification Ltd
• ISO 3834 sets the quality requirements for fusion welding of metallic materials. The standard embraces the concept that welding is a special process that requires specific competences to ensure that product quality is realised. ISO 3834 has, at its core, the competence requirements of key personnel involved in the realisation of product quality, and establishes the need for a suitably competent individual to be responsible for welding coordination.
• The ISO 3834 standard will be described and the role of fabricator certification in assuring compliance will be discussed. The benefits of compliance will be used to illustrate how ISO 3834 assists in product quality assurance and customer confidence. The routes to meeting personnel competence requirements will be clarified and discussed.
