CE Marking of Fire Doorsets

From 1 July 2013, under the Construction Products Regulation 2011 (CPR), it became mandatory for manufacturers to apply CE marking to any of their products which are covered by a harmonised European standard (hEN) or European Technical Assessment (ETA).

Do Fire Doors have to be CE marked?

Not yet!

Any door used for external purposes has to be CE marked when sold as a doorset, but because there is currently no harmonised European standard for fire performance, it cannot have a performance declaration for fire.

Internal doors / doorsets do not have to be CE marked at present but will be required to be when the harmonised standard for doorsets (EN 16034) comes into force.  It is expected that this will be the latter part of 2018, however, it is important to note that a co-existence period will be applied (length to be determined) that will mean it is possible to, but not mandatory to CE mark eligible product.
