CE Marking

At Format NDT Ltd we understand how much weight the correct certification can carry. It is a great way for companies to showcase that their products are the right quality and that their staff have the relevant skills. We can help companies here by providing CE marking for welders as well as various welding procedures and products.

What is a CE mark?

This is a certification mark that indicates a product conforms to the standards set for products to be sold in the European Economic Area (EEA). It showcases that the product bearing the mark meets the right standards in terms of health and safety as well as environmental protection. Therefore, it is a mark of quality, safety, and reliability.

The Manufacturer’s responsibility

Manufacturers who want to sell products in the EEA should get the CE marking to showcase their compliance. Since 1st July 2014 all fabricated structural steel must have the mark. In the UK it is a criminal offence not to do so.

A manufacturer must:

• Do a conformity assessment
• Set up the technical file
• Issue the Declaration of Conformity (DoC)
• Add the CE mark to a product

Compliance to welding codes

Format NDT Ltd can work with businesses to ensure they can display CE marks and actually bring products to the market. We do this by ensuring that they comply with the right welding codes and standards for every aspect of welded components. For example we can certify that they satisfy the quality controls, offer the right quality assurance, and meet the right specifications.

We can provide certification for welding procedures as well as welders. This will ensure compliance with UK and American Standards, including BS EN 1091-1 (CE marks), BS EN ISO 9606, BS EN ISO 15614, and ASME IX.


There are several important reasons to get the CE marking and relevant certification for welders. This includes:

• Ensures your welders have the skills to meet the welding procedure specification.
• Gives you confidence the welded components you produce will meet the design requirements.
• Provides assurances of the quality.
• Reduces the risk of company liability.
