You are invited to the BTTG™ Construction Products Regulation Seminar

BTTG™ are holding a seminar to help you prepare for CE marking to the Construction Products Regulation, 305/2011, using the harmonised 2016 geotextile standards. 

This seminar is an excellent opportunity for you to find out what you need to do and when, and learn what the implications may be for you. Our team will guide you through the updates to the certification process while our testing expert will help you understand changes to the tests and requirements.

The 2000 series of geotextile standards were replaced in 2016, and as a result any products placed on the European Union (EU) market must be CE Marked to the 2016 versions from 10th March 2018

What will it cover?
The seminar will take you through the major changes to the EN Geotextile standards, including the changes to the requirements for durability testing.  It may be necessary to have new or updated testing.

We’ll explain the effect of the standards on the FPC audits, and explain what you should do to place products on the EU market after 10 March 2018, including the requirement for manufacturer’s to obtain an updated FPC Certificate, and draw up a new Declaration of Performance.

Who should attend?
The seminar is aimed at any manufacturer, importer or distributor wishing to know what will be required of them leading up to the final transition date and beyond.

Where ?
At our training room at Unit 14, Wheel Forge Way, Trafford Park, Manchester, M17 1EH. Free parking is available on site.

Wednesday 31st January 2018 at 10am.

Please arrive at 9:30am for a 10am start. The day will start with refreshments and networking followed by the seminar and a buffet lunch.

This seminar is FREE of charge to attend.  Book now to secure place!

The seminar is designed to assist and prepare your business for the transition to the 2016 series of geotextile standards.  The seminar will be delivered by BTTG’s Certification Manager, Chris Butcher, and by BTTG’s Executive Manager of Geosynthetic testing, Rob Marshall.
