Manufacturers

Construction products that are subject to a harmonized standard must be performance-certified and CE marked if they are to be marketed and sold.

You as a manufacturer must CE mark your services, such as when you for the first time change the natural reaction to fire performance of a wood from D-s2, d0 to B-s1, d0. Even if the product is subject to change further down the production line, you still have a legal obligation to CE certify your own work in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation 305/2011.

Declaration of Performance - A red link in the chain that by law is required to follow a product through all of its stages.

Solid wood and wood-based panels, e.g. plywood, are covered by a harmonized product standard and must therefore be CE marked before being sold in EU member states and Norway. The Nando website contains a list of all harmonized standards in English. It also states when the standard can begin to be used and when it must be used; the time period in between is called the coexistence period of the standard.
