European Union – Product liability. The proceedings concerned harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and a decision of the Safety and Chemicals Office, Finland, essentially prohibiting the applicant company from using the CE marking under standard EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011 for four categories of construction products manufactured by it. In a preliminary ruling in the course of the proceedings, the Court of Justice of the European Union held that standard EN 1090-1:2009+A1:2011 had to be interpreted as meaning that such products, intended to be fixed into concrete before they set, fell within its scope if they had a structural function, in the sense that their removal from a structure would immediately reduce its resistance.
