CE Marking – Offshore Projects…?
One of the less ‘casual reading’ threads on STW… but I thought a fellow middle aged paper shufflers may be able to offer some guidance.
Does CE marking ( & 1090) apply to offshore constructions? North sea rigs for instance.
I’d rather the answer was no.
Any links or direction would be appreciated.

Having googled I can’t find out whether it matters where the sales takes place or where you use it. I’d guess the latter as I could buy a Radio from Zambia and have it shipped to Ghana to use but wouldn’t need CE for that…..
NB Do Hot Ducts even come under CE?
The CE Marking Is Required Only for the Following Types of Products:

Thanks for responses, its parts for a rig, ancillary equipment, hot ducts (600 deg) etc.
Interesting. I am currently supplying a similar product. Our system is too bespoke to warrant a CE cert. An IVB cert is different though. I hope you are charging the client for this. £4500 plus your time depending on scope.Posted 4 years ago

How can you issue IVB certification for your own equipment?
You can’t. You pay Lloyd’s or DNV to check your calcs and drawings and they issue a cert to say they agree with your design. Or they don’t which is a far bigger issue.
Heat will play a massive part if his ducts are reaching temps of +600 deg. Welds, expansion, shrinkage and fatigue are all calculable and an IVB will want to see design proof.Posted 4 years ago
kevj – That makes sense.
Although without getting too pedantic your post made it sound like you would be issuing the cert and not LR or DNV. 🙂
I don’t think there are any standard European requirements for specialist offshore equipment and no government department would really have the expertise to set any, so CE markings cannot apply. That’s where the likes of LR or DNV come in.
If you were making numerous identical systems I would guess you get them “type approved” by them, so you wouldn’t need to get an IVB cert for each one.Posted 4 years ago
