Overview

The Rural and Industrial Building Industry strives for the highest standards in its projects. CE Marking is a pillar of compliance to ensuring products are legal, safe and for fostering a level playing field for all in industry.

With the ‘Brexit effect’ changing the way product conformity rules are applied in the UK, and the introduction of the UK Conformity Assessment (UKCA), this seminar will provide both clients and those working in industry the tools they need to ensure they are choosing and selling a compliant product, respectively.

The day will feature prominent speakers from the key players, looking at this issue from certification, regulator, insurer, client and industry perspectives.

The day will also feature an exhibition from key suppliers in the industry, and an opportunity for clients and the rural & industrial industry to network.
