I haven't spent much time studying these standards but from what I understand 1090-1 is meant for conformity assessment of products (including individual beams, etc) leaving fabrication shops, but 1090-2 is meant for conformity assessment of whole structures as erected on site.
Best of luck!
I have few doubts about Execution of steel structures for CE marking.
Title of h'EN standard 1090-1 is "Requirements for conformity assessment of structural components"
Why it is not "Requirements for conformity assessment of steel or aluminium structure"?
Also Scope of 1090-1 says " this standard specifies conformity assessment of performance characteristics for structural steel and aluminium components as well as for kits placed on the market as construction products"
where, components refer to structural beams, columns and hardware etc.
kits are set of structural components assembled and installed on site
Structure is assembled system of structural components
So what is the difference between kits and structure???
Actually we are concern with modular process skid in steel which will be fabricated and assembled at a place other than Europe except some parts which will be assembled (welded or bolted) at erection site in Europe.
So is our product a kit or structure?
Please share your views.
Thanks in advance
