What is UKCA Marking of Structural Steelwork?
UK Conformity Assessed marking (UKCA marking) demonstrates compliance with the appropriate manufacturing standard for a product placed on the UK market of Great Britain (GB), comprising England, Scotland and Wales. For the UK market of Northern Ireland (NI) the equivalent is CE and UKNI. Introduced on 1 January 2021 it covers goods that previously required CE marking for products sold in the European Union (EU), of which the UK was formerly a member.

The UK designated standard covering fabricated structural steelwork is BS EN 1090-1[10], which is the same as the current European harmonised standard. All fabricated structural steelwork delivered to a site in GB must be UKCA marked (or CE marked until 31 December 2024) against BS EN 1090-1[10].

BS EN 1090-1 gives Requirements for Conformity Assessment of Structural Components. It describes how manufacturers can demonstrate that the components they produce meet the declared performance characteristics (the structural characteristics which make them fit for their particular use and function).

BS EN 1090-2 gives Technical Requirements for Steel Structures. It specifies the requirements for the execution (fabrication and erection) of steel structures to ensure adequate levels of mechanical resistance and stability, serviceability and durability. It determines the performance characteristics for components that the manufacturer must achieve and declare through the requirements of BS EN 1090-1.
