CENSolutions, the leading consultancy and test facility for the window, door and glazing industries, has announced its presence at the Trading Standards Institute Conference on stand H6 from 30th June to 3rd July at the Harrogate International Centre.
Mike Gaillard, Joint Managing Director of CENSolutions explains why the company will be exhibiting: “As a third party certification provider, CENSolutions is keen to support the industry as well as its individual customers and in line with the overriding theme of the show, Changing Behaviour, will be educating visitors about CE Marking and the lack of compliance to date.
“We’ll be taking our easy to use series of checklists of what CE Marking requires within the Fenestration Industry. Since it became a legal requirement in July 2013, only a minority of window, insulating glass sealed unit and toughened glass companies have implemented CE Marking. Trading Standards are already investigating a couple of companies who were reported to them as not being CE Marked and as part of the process contacted CENSolutions for more information on CE Marking for windows and glazing. So in support of all the companies that put in the effort to achieve CE Marking to continue selling legal windows, we wanted to offer more information to the people involved in policing it.
“The Trading Standards Conference is the leading show in the field of consumer affairs and provides professionals and organisations with the opportunity to come together to discuss issues that impact on consumers and businesses alike. The show is well attended by housing associations from across the country as well as organisations like the Citizens Advice Bureau and the Office of Fair Trading.”
