Intelect achieves approval to the Construction Products Standards.
Intelect now holds both ISO 9001, ISO 45001 and EN 1090 UKAS approved certifications from Lloyd’s Register. The combination of approvals means that their customers can purchase steel structures from one source with improved lead times and in full compliance with CE and safety regulations. As a result, this gives Intelect a greater scope of coverage, more so than many other companies supplying the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), Renewable Energy, Heavy, and Utilities Industries.
Compliance with EN 1090-1 enables Intelect to design and fabricate structures. These approvals demonstrate that Intelect has undergone and passed a rigorous audit, where their capability to comply with the current best practices employed in the Construction Sector was reviewed in detail.
Nathan Jones – Intelect’s Group QHSE Manger, said:
“The introduction of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR 305/2011) is an important milestone in the Construction & Civil Engineering sector, one we recognise and take seriously. Lloyd’s Register is regarded as one of the leading authorities in the industry and has previously demonstrated their ability to perform efficiently during our ISO 9001 and ISO 45001 assessment. This supported our decision to pursue EN 1090-1 approval, by again working with Lloyd’s Register, who have demonstrated a high level of knowledge and have been helpful throughout the entire process in supporting our intention to issue our products endorsed with the CE Mark.”
Jonathan Smithies – Intelect’s Design Engineering Manager, said:
“We are proud to achieve this accreditation; we have invested heavily in recent years in this area of the business to ensure our in-house design and engineering team are employing market leading services to our clients. This investment allows us to use the latest 3D scanning, design and augmented reality tools to visualise for clients their finished projects before we make the first cut”.
What is the Construction Products Regulation CPR 305/2011?
The Construction Products Regulation (CPR 305/2011) applies to manufacturers, distributors and fabricators of construction products within the European economic area.
To successfully comply with these regulations companies must undergo an assessment by a notified body such as Lloyd’s Register, and prove their systems and products are fully compliant with all aspects of these regulations. If the organisation is successful, they are then awarded the CPR Certification. This enables them to mark their products with CE Marking indicating their processes and products are fully in compliance and can be marketed across the region without additional testing or barriers to trade.
