Legislative Standards

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.
