J & J Carter are dedicated to ensuring we meet the requirements of guidelines and changes in regulations that concern the structural design and engineering of temporary and permanent structures.
This helps to ensure the safety of employees, the public and others who could be affected by such structures.
Changes now require us to use the following codes:-
Eurocode 0 – Basis of Structural Design - B.S E.N 1990 : 2002
Eurocode 1 – Actions on Structures : Wind Actions - B.S E.N 1991-1-4 : 2005 + A1 : 2010
Eurocode 3 – Design of Steel Structures - B.S E.N 1993-1-1/4/8 : 2005
Eurocode 9 – Design of Aluminium Structures - B.S E.N 1999-1-1 : 199
For temporary structures B.S E.N 13782 - Temporary Structures - Tents - Safety will apply. This in turn requires the structural frame to be C.E Marked in accordance with B.S E.N 1090-1 : 2009
J & J Carter are certified in accordance with B.S E.N 1090-1:2009 with a factory production control certificate number 14/3114 and licensed to undertake work up to and including Execution Class 2.

Since the introduction of the Construction Products Regulation J & J Carter was quick to implement the legislative requirements for the UKCA / CE Marking of structural steel and aluminium products. J & J Carter are formally certificated by the UKAS accredited body Centre for Assessment against the EN 1090 up to Execution Level 2; thereby enabling the issue of J & J Carter - UKCA / CE Declaration of Performance certificates for all our products.
In support of our EN 1090 status, our personnel are Coded Welders against the necessary testing standards, with our Responsible Welding Coordinator certified as technical competence.
J & J Carter have an approved Factory Production Control management system to enable the UKCA / CE Marking of non-metallic products, such as our EcoDam.
