TRA reaches out to regional roofers

7 October 2019

A series of free regional events for the roofing and housebuilding industries
is starting this month, focusing on the latest advice on Brexit, the CE marking of construction products post-Brexit, and new technical guidance on the manufacture of trussed rafters, spandrel and gable panels and related structures.

Manufacturers, suppliers and buyers of trussed rafters and engineered joists can join the meetings organised by the Trussed Rafter Association (TRA) in Coventry on October 31 and in Swindon on November 21 (a meeting in Leeds took place on October 3).

“There are major developments happening in the sector this autumn and it is important to communicate that to the industry,” said Nick Boulton, TRA chief executive.

“If the UK leaves the EU without a deal on October 31 or any future date, then manufacturers also need to be aware that certain changes will be legally necessary in the CE marking of construction products including trussed rafters and metal web joists.”

The meetings are open to all businesses in the sector, including members and non-members of the TRA. To find out more about the TRA and the regional events visit the TRA website
