Seminar Overview

As many are aware, the Building Regulations 2013 have outlined the very specific nature of compliance for construction materials and workmanship. To date, there has been confusion around what these compliance specifications mean in practice and to the wider industry.
This seminar will explore the implications of mandatory CE marking of structural steel and workmanship in this particular field. Engineers must be aware of these implications in the delivery of their role as assigned certifier, and in their design and specifying capacities. Understanding EN 1090, the Construction Products Regulation, the Building Regulations and their interactions in the delivery of structural steel works is vital to delivering quality structural work. This session is not to be missed by anyone working with, designing or delivering steel works in Ireland.
Seminar Aim

The aim of this seminar is to deliver essential knowledge to engineers working with, designing and overseeing steel works to ensure their understanding of responsibilities in this area are up to date.
