BREXIT READY

The UK will leave the EU on 31st December 2020 after which the UK will be in a transition period. At the end of the transition period and where EU legislation requires accreditation to be awarded, Irish companies should change over to our national accreditation body INAB as UKAS accreditation will no-longer be recognised.

Follow on from September 22nd post:
NSSS 7 was printed last week. It states that all companies with EXC2 will require separate audit for ISO EN 3834-3 and for EXC 3&4 audited to 3834-2 and that this will have to be done by Jan 1st 2021. 3834 is a Quality Welding Management System, (don’t shout at me, we don’t make the rules, only advise on them)

Notified Bodies that audit you for 1090 will not be requiring this, it will become a requirement but it’s down the line.

Saying that, some state bodies in Ireland are asking for it before tendering and only last week a large Consultancy Engineering practice asked that the fabricator has it.

If you are exporting to NI or Mainland UK you will need it. The UK are adopting 3834.

If you are exporting to the UK from 1st January on, you will require UKCA, this is their replacement for CE.
If you require UKCA, please contact us as we have agreed terms with UK Notified Bodies and one combined audit for CE and UKCA will be undertaken.

Hang in there,
Pat

NSSS (7th Edition)
The BSCA has recently published the 7th edition of the NSSS. This latest edition has been extensively updated and represents the biggest change since its introduction in 1989. One of the main changes is the inclusion of a new section on intumescent paint systems.

Following the tragic Grenfell Tower fire and the call from Dame Judith Hackitt for industry not to wait for legislation, the BCSA said it and the wider constructional steelwork community decided to take ownership of the specification, application and inspection of intumescent paint systems.

Section 10 of the NSSS now includes comprehensive information on intumescent paint systems and to improve quality, it encourages the paint systems to be applied in the workshop rather than on-site. Other significant changes include a mandatory requirement for all steelwork contractors to put in place a third-party certified welding quality management system to BS EN ISO 3834[11].

The main body of the NSSS is limited to Execution Class 2, but this version also contains an Annex of the requirements for Execution Class 3 for static structures and an Annex giving general guidance on Execution Class 3 for buildings subject to fatigue, such as crane supporting structures.

To allow steelwork contractors time to put in place the necessary third-party systems to comply with the Specification it has been decided that the NSSS will not come in to force until 1st January 2021.
