BUSINESSNEWS Helping construction site managers meet new CE mark regulations A campaign to help construction site managers be aware of the new legal requirements relating to CE marked external doorsets has been launched by the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF). The DHF, which represents all the leading UK industrial and commercial door makers, has produced a guide which spells out the legal CE marking obligations for suppliers, of which on-site managers need to be aware. It can be downloaded from http://www. dhfonline.org.uk/downloads/pub208.pdf A CE marked external doorset must be a complete doorset product package, from a single source, and comprise door, frame, hardware, glass and seals. The single source may take responsibility for assembly and installation on site of the complete CE marked doorset package and must provide a formal Declaration of Performance for the product. The new DHF CE marked external doorset guide for construction site management advises on-site personnel on how they can be sure they are receiving correctly CE marked doorsets that meet the performance requirements of their project. The DHF is also planning an on-site poster campaign to make all construction site personnel aware of the important changes in CE marking legislation. On-site construction personnel can also download other guides from the DHF website www.dhfonline.org.uk that give more information and technical guidance about CE marking of external doorsets.

Brian Berry, the Chief Executive of the FMB, said: β€œThe Government is right to want to increase protection for consumers against rogue traders and to ensure they are better informed about their rights. However, the idea that consumers will be willing and able to record verbal agreements on their iPhones is misplaced. The best way for consumers wanting to protect themselves when commissioning home improvement or repair work is to insist o Έ„έΙ₯ΡΡ•Έ½ΉΡΙ…ΠΈQ‘₯́Ν₯΅Α±”Ι•ΕΥ₯Ι•΅•ΉΠέ₯±°έ••½ΥЁё”½έ‰½έ™Ι½΄Ρ‘”ΑΙ½™•ΝΝ₯½Ή…°‰Υ₯±‘•ΙΜ»Št •ΙΙ䁍½ΉΡ₯ΉΥ•θƒŠq]₯Ρ‘½ΥЁ„έΙ₯ΡΡ•Έ½ΉΡΙ…Π½Θ…Ήδ­₯Ή½˜Α…Α•Ιέ½Ι¬°Ρ‘”•Ή™½Ι•΅•ΉΠ½˜½ΉΝΥ΅•ΘΙ₯‘Ρ́₯́…±΅½ΝЁ₯΅Α½ΝΝ₯‰±”₯˜Ν½΅•Ρ‘₯Ήœ½•ΜέΙ½Ήœ½Έ„‘½΅”Ι•Ή½Ω…Ρ₯½Έ½ΘΙ•Α…₯ȁΑΙ½©•ΠΈ ½ΉΝΥ΅•Ί͑½Υ±…±έ…έ‘Ʌ܁Υΐ„έΙ₯ΡΡ•Έ½ΉΡΙ…Πέ₯Ρ Ρ‘•₯ȁ‰Υ₯±‘•Θ…Ή…Ι•”„Α…ε΅•ΉΠΑ±…ΈΡΌΝΥ₯Ё‰½Ρ Α…ΙΡ₯•Μ₯Έ…‘Ω…Ή”½˜έ½Ι¬ΝΡ…ΙΡ₯ΉœΈQ•΅Α±…Ρ”½ΉΡΙ…Ρ́έΙ₯ΡΡ•Έ₯ΈΑ±…₯ΈΉ±₯Ν …Έ‰”‘½έΉ±½…‘•‰δ…Ήε½Ή”™½Θ™Ι•”™Ι½΄Ρ‘”•‘•Ι…Ρ₯½Έ½˜5…Νѕȁ Υ₯±‘•Ιϊdέ•‰Ν₯Ρ”»Št •ΙΙ䁍½Ή±Υ‘•θƒŠq%˜Ρ‘”½Ω•ΙΉ΅•ΉΠΙ•…±±δέ…ΉΡ́ѼΡ…­±”Ι½Υ”ΡΙ…‘•ΙΜ°₯Ё͑½Υ±ΥЁё”Ι…Ρ”½˜YP½Έ…±°‘½ΥΝ₯ΉœΙ•Ή½Ω…Ρ₯½Έ½ΘΙ•Α…₯ȁݽɬΈQ‘₯́έ₯±°‘•±ΐΙ•‘Ս”Ρ‘”ΉΥ΅‰•Θ½˜™₯ɡ́ݑΌ…Ι”½™™•Ι₯Ήœ„‘•…ΐ‘•…°Ρ‘…Ё½΅•Μέ₯Ρ‘½ΥЁ„ΑΙ½Α•Θ½ΉΡΙ…Π»ŠtέέάΉΉ…₯±Ρ‘•Ι½Υ•ΜΉ½ΙœΉΥ¬()U,αΑ½ΙЁ₯Ή…Ή”ΝΥΑΑ½ΙЁѼ Ι₯Ρ₯Ν •αΑ½ΙΡ•Ί…Π€Δȡ啅ȁ‘₯ ) Ι₯Ρ₯Ν ‰ΥΝ₯Ή•Ν͕́ɕ•₯Ω•ƒ ŒΠΈΜ‰₯±±₯½Έέ½ΙΡ ½˜ΝΥΑΑ½ΙЁ™Ι½΄Ρ‘”½Ω•ΙΉ΅•ΉΠΡ‘ɽ՝ U,αΑ½ΙЁ₯Ή…Ή”€‘U-€₯Έ€ΘΐΔΘ΄ΔΜ°Υΐ™Ι½΄ƒ ŒΘΈΜ‰₯±±₯½Έ₯ΈΡ‘”ΑΙ•Ω₯½Ύ啅Ȱ…ΉΡ‘”‘₯‘•ΝЁ₯Έ€Δȁ啅ΙΜΈU,₯Ή‘ΥΝΡΙ₯•Μ‘…Ω”‰•Ή•™₯Ρ•™Ι½΄•αΑ½ΙЁΙ•‘₯ЁΥ…Ι…ΉΡ••Μ…Ή₯ΉΝΥΙ…Ή”½ΈΡΙ…ΉΝ…Ρ₯½ΉΜΙ…Ή₯Ήœ™Ι½΄…́±₯ΡΡ±”…Μƒ ŒΠ°ΐΐΐΡΌ…́΅Υ …Μƒ ŒΘ‰₯±±₯½ΈΈQ‘₯́ΝΥΑΑ½ΙЁ‘…́•Ή…‰±•U,½΅Α…Ή₯•ΜΡΌ•αΑ½ΙЁѼ€Τΰ½ΥΉΡΙ₯•Μ…Ι½Ν́ё”έ½Ι±°™Ι½΄‰Τ‘…‰€ΡΌY₯•ΡΉ…΄°₯±±ΥΝΡΙ…Ρ₯ΉœΡ‘”U/ŠéΝΡΙ•ΉΡ …́„±½‰…°•αΑ½ΙΡ•ΘΈU-₯́ё”U/Šé•αΑ½ΙЁΙ•‘₯Ё…•ΉδΈ%ΡΜƒ ŒΠΈΜ‰₯±±₯½Έ½˜ΝΥΑΑ½ΙЁ™½Θ•αΑ½ΙΡ́₯́ё”‘₯‘•ΝЁΝ₯Ή”€Θΐΐΐ΄ΐΔΈMΥΑΑ½ΙЁ‘…́‰••ΈΑΙ½Ω₯‘•™½Θ½΅Α…Ή₯•Μ½˜…±°Ν₯ι•Μ°™Ι½΄Ρ‘”Ω•ΙδΝ΅…±±•ΝЁ΅₯ΙΌ΅™₯ɡ́Ѽ±…ɝ”½ΙΑ½Ι…Ρ₯½ΉΜΈQ‘₯́₯Ή±Υ‘•ΜΡ‘½ΥΝ…Ή‘́½˜M5́ݑΌ‘…Ω”‰•Ή•™₯Ρ•₯Ή‘₯Ι•Ρ±δΡ‘ɽ՝ Ρ‘”ΝΥΑΑ±δ‘…₯ΉΜ½˜±…ɝ”ΥΝΡ½΅•ΊΝΥΑΑ½ΙΡ•‰δU-Έ5₯Ή₯Νѕȁ™½ΘQΙ…‘”°1½ΙΙ••Έ°Ν…₯θƒŠqU-Α±…έ…Έ₯΅Α½ΙΡ…ΉΠΙ½±”₯Έ‘•±Α₯Ήœ‰½½ΝЁ Ι₯Ρ…₯»Šé•αΑ½ΙΡ́…Ή₯́½ΉΡΙ₯‰ΥΡ₯ΉœΡΌΡ‘”‘•…±₯Ήœ…ΉΙ•‰…±…Ή₯Ήœ½˜Ρ‘”•½Ή½΅δΈƒŠq%ӊéΑ…ΙΡ₯Υ±…Ι±δΑ±•…Ν₯ΉœΡΌΝ•”΅½Ι”M5́х­₯Ήœ…‘Ω…ΉΡ…”½˜Ρ‘”Ν•ΙΩ₯•Μ…ΉΑΙ½‘ՍΡ́U-½™™•ΙΜ°…Ή$…΄ΝΥΙ”Ρ‘”Ή•άΉ•Ρέ½Ι¬½˜Ι•₯½Ή…°•αΑ½ΙЁ™₯Ή…Ή”…‘Ω₯Ν•Ίέ₯±°‘•±ΐ΅½Ι”M5͕́₯锁½ΑΑ½ΙΡΥΉ₯Ρ₯•ΜΡΌ•αΑ½ΙЁΉ•αЁ啅ȸΡ₯Ήœ ‘₯•˜ᕍΥΡ₯Ω”°…Ω₯!…Ω•±½¬°Ν…₯θƒŠqαΑ½ΙΡ₯Ήœ₯́­•δΡΌΡ‘”U/Šé•½Ή½΅₯ŒΙ•½Ω•Ι䁅Ή$…΄‘•±₯‘Ρ•έ”‘…Ω”‘…„Ι•½Ιε•…ȁ‘•±Α₯Ήœ…Έ•Ω•Θ₯ΉΙ•…Ν₯ΉœΉΥ΅‰•Θ½˜½΅Α…Ή₯•Μέ₯Έ‰ΥΝ₯Ή•Ν́₯Έ‘₯Ω•ΙΝ”Ν•Ρ½Ί…Ή½Ω•ΙΝ•…́΅…Ι­•ΡΜ»Št((ΨΨ())U0€ΘΐΔΜ()QΌΙ•…΅½Ι”°Ω₯Ν₯ЁέέάΉ±•…ΙΩ₯•ά΅Υ¬Ή½΄((0
