CE Marking for Lighting Columns


From 1 July 2013, CE marking in the UK became mandatory, although it has been necessary for columns exported to Europe for some time.
All the major manufacturers of lighting columns met to review the relevant legislation and standards and have published guidance for the UK Lighting Industry on the administration and practical implementation of CE marking lighting columns.
The document is the conclusion of months of research and discussion within the lighting industry and summarises the general requirements for CE marking from the European legislation and UK law, as communicated through the British and European Standards. It outlines the responsibilities of manufacturers and suppliers and sets out the lighting industry's agreed best practice for meeting these requirements for lighting columns manufactured from concrete, steel, aluminium and fibre reinforced polymer composite (FRPC).

N.B. Due to some variances between CPD and CPR this document will be reviewed with a view to updating or withdrawal. Until a decision is made it is recommended that Lighting Columns within the scope of EN 40 should be CE marked to CPR in accordance with EN 40 Annex ZA.

Any other structural products that don't have specific harmonised product standards should be designed in accordance with Eurocodes and CE marked to EN 1090.
