Title: Kitemark for Road Signs
Date uploaded: 30th November 2010
Date published/launched: Pre 2009
Road signs have been identified as 'High Risk' under the Construction Products Directive (CPD) because of their function. Kitemark scheme for road traffic signs was launched to assist manufacturers to comply with European legislation.
Road signs have been identified as 'High Risk' under the Construction Products Directive (CPD) because of their function of informing and warning the motorist. Because of this, they must be independently assessed to gain the required CE mark which may become mandatory from mid 2013 (subject to confirmation). It is already mandatory in most other EU countries.
BSI (British Standards Institution) is a notified body and offers both Kitemark certification and the CE mark. Requirements for CE marking are quite complex and involved - the process can take up to three years to complete.
