BPMA repeats CE Marking guidance to tackle non-compliance
The British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA) is again promoting its training course on the importance of CE Marking for pumps. The Association says that non-compliant pumping equipment remains a major problem in the UK market, where CE marking is compulsory.
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
The 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. The BPMA believes that 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.
