Online product catalogue solution provider e-Xact Online Ltd offers building product manufacturers a free-of-charge cure for the administrative headaches caused by mandatory CE Marking
Building product manufacturers could be facing an administrative headache as CE Markings become mandatory on 1 st July 2013. Online product catalogue solution provider e-Xact has developed a cure by introducing a CE Marking database that is available to companies who don’t subscribe to its service.
At the moment, assigning CE markings to any products covered by a harmonised European standard (hEN) or European Technical Assessment (ETA) has been voluntary. The significant change of mandatory CE markings under the Construction Products Regulation 20111 (CPR) could be far-reaching. The Regulation requires product manufacturers to make changes to specification documents, technical datasheets and other marketing collateral for covered products that do not currently have CE Markings, which will cost time, money and resource.
Mike Shippin, Product Director for e-Xact says, “Our online catalogue service already provides subscribers with a data repository that captures all their product details, including the current voluntary CE markings. For building product manufactures who are non-subscribers, we are offering a separate CE Marking database that will enable them to list some simple information about their products, including CE Marking details. This data will be available to builders merchants and other distributors throughout the UK.”
