With effect from 1 July 2013 curtain walling and windows will have to be CE marked in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation.

The responsibility for CE marking of a curtain wall lies with the specialist contractor but system and component suppliers will need to test their products and provide supporting documentation to their dealers.

Guidance for CWCT members is available in the Cladding forum here.

CWCT gave a series of regional workshops on CE marking of curtain walling. The presentations made at those workshops by Stephen Ledbetter may be downloaded here
