Can holding down bolts (foundation bolts) be CE marked?
Currently, Holding Down Bolts doesn’t fall into Construction Product Regulation standards and they cannot be CE Marked.
Holding Down Bolts are manufactured in accordance with BS 7419 (British Standard). This standard is not a harmonised standard like EN/ISO, that will allow them to be CE marked.
More about this you can read in BCSA memorandum No 17-14.
In new edition of EN 15048:2016 (after standard will become harmonised), holding down bolts can be considered for CE marking after initial testing and suitability test in accordance 5.2. d) of EN 15048-2:2016.
