What we do
Hickey Fabrication Services successfully achieved CE Certification in 2016.
CE Marking of structural steelwork has become a legal requirement in Ireland since 1st July 2014. Manufacturers must be audited and then will only be allowed to manufacture structures within the execution class that the audit deems them competent to produce.
Clients or main contractors who engage a steelwork contractor should carry out due diligence and should only appoint a steelwork contractor certified with an Execution Class equal to that for the project in order to comply with legislation
For HFS to pass this audit and achieve the execution class HFS had to carry out the following;
Determine the execution class for the product range
Implement the complete Factory Production Control System
Implement Welding procedures & testing (where required)
Determine & Develop the required product testing
