What is the 1090?
It is mandatory standard for all metal structure manufacturing companies that want to obtain the EC marking.
Gala Gar offers a tool, through the WPS (welding procedure specifications), to help companies obtain the EC certificate, according to EN1090, through a suitable classification entity.
In short, an accredited body must approve your company. Your company must have a certification that shows you have control over your entire production system, including the equipment used for manufacture and production, control over the personnel who must have the necessary qualifications, and of course all the procedures must be described in a quality manual and respected, accordingly.
What does Gala Gar afford?
Gala Gar provides industry with an important tool, thanks to its wps, wpqr, welder certification packages, etc., which form part of the requirements included in UNE-EN 1090, for the companies who have these services to be able to effectively and correctly obtain this certification.
And it does so by covering the most extreme execution or production class, the EXC4. The execution class shows the extent to which a company is affected by this new standard. The execution class EXC4 should be applied to special structures or structures that would have extreme consequences if they were to have structural faults, as required by the national provisions.
