BPMA Repeats CE Marking Guidance – essential for all pump manufacturers, distributors and set builders
16 January 2020
This guidance provision proved so popular on the two occasions it was presented in 2019 that a third course is scheduled to take place at the BPMA’s training facility in West Bromwich on Tuesday 11th February
Non-compliant pumping equipment remains a major problem in the UK market, where CE marking is compulsory. However, the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) is keen to ensure that all assembled equipment, with liquid pumps associated within the build, are placed on the market and put into service correctly throughout the United Kingdom.
All companies that build pumping equipment, such as pressurisation units, booster sets, rainwater harvesting tanks, sewage stations or bespoke equipment and who sell products in the UK or to the European market must be able to demonstrate that the products meet applicable EU requirements, are correctly CE marked and are placed on the market with the correct Declaration of Conformity.
Concerned that many companies still do not meet these obligations under current legislation, the BPMA configured this training course to specifically address this key issue. This course seeks to provide the information and skills required to understand Self Cert CE Marking Essentials and enable compliance with a range of Directives, Regulations and EN Standards. It will also cover other related product certification and documentation issues.
Sadly, many manufacturers do not fully understand their legal obligations and as such are currently breaking the law in the UK. The information presented by the BPMA enables the required compliance to be understood and achieved.
CE Marking will remain a legal requirement in the UK until 31st December 2020, at which point it will be replaced by the UK CA Mark. At the time of writing, it is not known what level of regulatory alignment will be adopted once the UK leaves the EU, but the latest position will be addressed as part of this provision.
The Course will be held at the BPMA offices in West Bromwich on Tuesday 11th February and will run from 10:30-16:00. Crucially, attendance is open to both BPMA Members and Non-Members.
