Adaptions to EN 1090-1 – CE Marking of Structural Steel
Going forward, ‘Common’ railings (balustrades) & Staircases which merely have the function of preventing a person from falling are not structural products because they do not support (a part of) the structure. In general their failure will affect the satisfaction of Basic Work Requirement 4 – Safety and accessibility in use (as detailed in Annex I of Regulation EU 305/2011) rather than Basic Work Requirement 1 (mechanical resistance and stability).
For this reason, these common balustrades or staircase cannot be CE marked on the basis of standard EN 1090-1.
However, balustrades & staircases which do have a role in supporting the structure of the construction work or parts of it have a structural function, i.e. their performance may affect the mechanical resistance and stability of e.g. a building AND they prevent a person from falling, thus are covered by EN 1090-1 and must therefore be placed on the EU market with a DoP and the CE marking.

Balustrade & Staircase may also have requirements under Part K of the Building Regulations, refer to TGD K (Stairways, Ladders, Ramps and Guards) – https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/6b632-technical-guidance-document-k-stairways-ladders-ramps-and-guards/

Any queries, just shout.
Thanks,
Pat
