Can holding down bolts (foundation bolts) be CE (UKCA) marked?

Currently, Holding Down Bolts doesn’t fall into Construction Product Regulation (CPR) standards and they cannot be CE (UKCA) Marked.

Holding Down Bolts are manufactured per BS 7419](/standards/bs-7419-holding-bolts-basic-dimensions) (British Standard). This standard is not a harmonised standard like EN/ISO, which will allow them to be CE (UKCA) marked.

More about this can be read in BCSA memorandum No 17-14**](/downloads/news/2014/Holding-Down-Bolts-and-CE-marking.pdf).

In the new edition of EN 15048:2016 (after the standard will become harmonised), holding down bolts can be considered for CE (UKCA) marking after initial testing and suitability test following 5.2. d) of EN 15048-2:2016.

Currently, EN 15048:2007 edition is the only harmonised standard that can be used for CE (UKCA) marking.
