Longley Concrete receives BSi CE Marking approval

Longley Concrete is pleased to announce that the business has received approval from BSi to confirm that their factory control procedures and concrete products meet the necessary requirements for CE Marking.

CE marking is a new initiative being introduced in the UK by The Construction Products Regulation (CPR). It requires that from the 1st July 2013 it is mandatory for most construction products to have CE markings so that they can be sold anywhere in Europe. CE marking communicates that a product meets a set of basic European harmonised standards, or a European Technical Assessment. Each product with CE markings has a Declaration of Performance (DoP) that is made available to purchasers and specifiers.

Longley has been through a process of approval with BSi and their recent final Stage 2 Audit was to ensure that all elements of Factory Production Control and Product Specification were effectively organised by the management system at the Ireland factory.

Comment from Longley

Vanessa Dunkley, Technical Director, has been managing the CE Marking project and commented “We are pleased that Longley Concrete has been approved by Bsi. We’ve worked hard the last 12 months to ensure that our precast concrete products were CE compliant by the July deadline.”
