UKCA Certification

UKCA Certification for BS EN 1090-2 Fabrications at DioMet Fabrications Ltd

At DioMet Fabrications Ltd, safety and quality are at the forefront of everything we do. That's why we're proud to hold UKCA certification for fabrication processes following the requirements of BS EN 1090-2. This certification ensures our Execution Class 2 structural steel products, including staircases, balconies, and balustrades, meet the most stringent safety standards.

What Does UKCA Certification Mean for You?

The UKCA marking signifies that our products comply with the rigorous safety regulations outlined in BS EN 1090-2. This standard specifies the technical requirements for the execution (fabrication and erection) of steel structures, ensuring they possess adequate mechanical resistance, stability, serviceability, and durability.

Why is UKCA Certification Essential?

UKCA certification is not just a mark of quality; it's a legal requirement for all fabricated structural steelwork sold or installed within the UK market. Unfortunately, many companies remain unaware of this regulation, or worse, choose to operate illegally. This can lead to serious consequences for both you and your property:

  • Safety Risks: Uncertified steelwork may not meet the necessary safety standards, posing a significant threat to your home's structural integrity and the safety of its occupants.
  • Selling Difficulties: When it comes time to sell your property, uncertified steelwork can become a major hurdle. Potential buyers may be hesitant to proceed, and achieving mortgage approval could become impossible.
  • Building Regs Reminder: When your building work requires sign-off from building regulations, ensure your supplier provides a UKCA certificate upon completion. Missing this crucial document can lead to costly delays, stress, and potential rework. If your supplier was not UKCA certified, it’s a serious problem. 
  • Liability Issues: In the event of a problem with your steelwork, such as a structural failure, the lack of UKCA certification can expose you to significant legal and financial liabilities.

Why Can a UKCA Certificate Only Be Issued After Project Completion?

Unlike certifications for individual components, UKCA certification for BS EN 1090-2 fabrication encompasses the entire manufacturing process. This holistic approach guarantees every stage contributes to a safe and reliable final product. Here's why the certificate is issued after project completion:

  • Comprehensive FPC System Evaluation: Our Factory Production Control (FPC) system undergoes a thorough assessment, ensuring adherence to BS EN 1090-2 for Execution Class 2. This includes:

    • Material sourcing and quality control procedures aligned with Class 2 requirements
    • Fabrication processes and welder qualifications specifically for Class 2 applications
    • Welding machine calibration and maintenance records in line with the standard
    • Documentation of fixings and fasteners suitable for Class 2 execution
    • A robust audit trail system to track all aspects of production
    • Procedures for identifying, documenting, and resolving any non-conformances encountered
  • Management Review and Sign-Off: After project completion and a successful FPC system evaluation, a formal management review takes place. This ensures all BS EN 1090-2 requirements for Execution Class 2 are met before issuing the UKCA certificate.
