Röwer & Rüb as EN 1090 - certified manufacturer of supporting steel structures
All manufacturers of halls or buildings with a steel structure will not be able to bypass compliance with the new EN 1090 standard. Since 1 July 2014 the new European standard has stipulated that all buildings with a basic steel structure and that are brought onto the market may only be manufactured by certified steel construction companies. The steel structure will be provided with a CE conformity mark after erection. Official building offices and authorities are now obliged to ensure compliance with these applicable standards and statutory regulations, and this must be included in the building approval process. The legal framework is governed by the "REGULATION (EU) No. 305/2011 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 9 March 2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products".
Röwer & Rüb reacted quickly to this requirement. In January 2014, six months before the standard came into force, everything was set in motion. Before the standard came into force, the welding qualification of the company was governed by the DIN 18800-7 standard. This standard mainly focused on the welding qualification of the company that was monitored by an independent testing institute.
After introduction and harmonisation of the new pan-European standard EN 1090 in connection with the EU Directive 305/2011 of the European Parliament and the Council of 9 March 2011 (Construction Products Regulation), another step was taken to ensure and harmonise the quality of the products in the construction sector. This Regulation stipulates that companies marketing components and kits for supporting steel constructions must be certified by an independent testing institute. Quality monitoring processes for the production and traceability of the employed materials play an important role alongside the welding qualification. The entire manufacturing process is monitored, starting with the static requirements and calculations for the building to the use of materials with test certificates and implementation of works production monitoring systems with suitable management as well as correct erection of the system.
In the case of the products of Röwer & Rüb this means that all manufacturing processes for buildings such as lungeing arenas, track roofs, horse stables or loose boxes that contain supporting steel constructions will be inspected. Our company has proven that it can master such challenges with ease and was therefore awarded the certificate.
Violation of the Regulation has unpleasant consequences for the supplier and customer in the form of fines and criminal proceedings; these are listed in the following document, especially Section 8, Administrative Fines and Section 9, Criminal Provisions.
