From July 2013 it has been a legal obligation for construction products sold the Europe to have both a Declaration of performance and to be CE marked. To promote this legal obligation, Stone Federation Great Britain has launched a CE Marking Awareness campaign after the Government made CE marking of most product used in construction compulsory under building regulations. Step taken by Stone Federation is in everyone's interest. It will become especially relevant in case of disputes, which is when the use of products that are not marked are most likely to come to light. On noticing that many architects, designers, specifiers, clients and local authorities have not been properly informed about the implications of CE marking campaign, stone Federation has launched this campaign. It is with the aim to educate as well as encourage the construction industry, particularly its specifiers, to ensure it is operating within the law when buying and using stone products.
