CE marking and Brexit

CE marking and BREXIT

Harrison Goldman are Stone Federation GB members, we have been advised of the following information:

 

British Standards Secured Post-Brexit. On 23 November, the General Assemblies of the European Standards Organizations CEN and CENELEC approved a plan that secures British Standards Institutions’ full membership post-Brexit. BSI welcomed the outcome as a pragmatic solution that provides stability for the European standards system while meeting the needs of their stakeholders, which includes the natural stone industry. This means that all Eurocodes, EN product standards and EN test methods will still apply. The decisions, taken separately in both organizations, will also enable the UK industry and other stakeholders to continue their important work shaping and maintaining best practice standards used across Europe and internationally. It also means that UK experts will continue as chairs, convenors, committee members and policy experts to work on maintaining and developing the 20,000 European standards that are managed by CEN and CENELEC.

As more information is issued we’ll post an update.
