You may have seen news in the press recently that CENSolutions has been providing voluntary training presentations on the Construction Products Regulation and those harmonised EN Standards relating to the Fenestration Industry, to various Trading Standards regions across the UK.

With a 9 strong team of Independent Auditors, servicing the UK and Ireland, CENSolutions is working with manufacturers on a daily basis and understand all too well their frustrations when it comes to the unethical element of the market place that does not comply with current legislation. Put quite simply, why do some people bother with compliance, when others don’t and appear to get away with it scot free?

That’s why, at CENSolutions, we decided to volunteer ourselves to provide training presentations to representatives from Trading Standards regions across the UK, as we appreciate how tough it is to police the market, especially without any help or guidance to date from the Government or Industry Governing Bodies. To date, we have delivered three presentations and have a further two to deliver in the coming months. At each one we have not only given information and guidance on the current legislation, but also provided checklists and information on what to look out for.

For years, our industry has been referred to as cowboys by some – but we need to work together to try and stamp out the unethical element of the market and continue to support and promote the excellent products currently being produced by compliant manufacturers.

Yours sincerely

Mike Gaillard
Joint Managing Director of CENSolutions Ltd
