BS EN 1090 Part 2 – Execution of steel structures
One of the UK’s leading tube manipulation, fabrication and high integrity welding companies has began 2016 in buoyant mood after announcing it has achieved BS EN 1090 Pt 2 – Execution of steel structures accreditation.
West Midlands based European Heathyards who fabricate tube, plate and steel structures for the oil and gas, power generation, petro chemical and nuclear sectors started the initial accreditation process in early 2015 and achieved BS EN 1090 Pt 2 accreditation in December 2015.
According to Technical Director Arran Nash attaining BS EN 1090 part 2 – Execution of steel structures, forms part of an ongoing drive to maintain the highest possible standards as European Heathyards seek to expand their market share in the construction industry.
“Achieving BS EN 1090 accreditation was a natural progression in our quality process as we already had most of the systems, procedures and qualified staff in place to absorb the stringent demands of the manufacturing and audit process.”
“The move towards BS EN 1090 Pt 2 will play a key part in positioning European Heathyards as a key supplier of safety critical steel structures to the construction industry. The accreditation is now a legal requirement for all structural steelwork products.” explained Arran Nash.
European Heathyards are currently accredited to the globally recognised ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and BS OHSAS 18001 quality and environmental management systems and manufacture heat exchangers and pressure vessels under PED and ASME U-Stamp.
They also have an ASME audit planned in 2016 to enable them to achieve accreditation for the S-stamp (power boiler) PP-stamp (Pressure piping) R-stamp (Repairs & Alterations).[toggle_box] [toggle_item title=”BS EN 9010 Part 2 Accreditation” active=”false”][column col=”1/2″]BS EN 1090-2 – looks at all the requirements that should be taken into account for the execution of structural steelwork. This includes structures and manufactured components produced from hot rolled, structural steels; cold-formed components and sheeting; hot finished and cold formed structural hollow sections, as well as austenitic-ferritic and ferritic stainless steel products.
