The Construction Products Regulations (CPR) is a set of performance requirements developed to standardise building regulations across Europe.
The output being a CE marking which is placed on the product to declare that a product complies with all relevant EU Directives and mandatory requirements.
Benefits of CPR
- CE marking gives your company easier access into the European market to sell your products without adaptation or rechecking. This means that regulatory authorities cannot ask for any additional marks or certificates, let alone additional testing
- You or the distributors of your product are able to trade your product in any country of the European Internal Market with the same documentation
- Your customers and end users are able to check the performance of a product and compare it with other products under the same technical approach
- When you affix the CE marking to a product it means that you are ensuring that the performance of the product you are selling is the same as what you are declaring and that it has been obtained using the right European Technical Specification.
What are Construction Product Regulations?
The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) lays down harmonised rules for the marketing of construction products in the EU. The Regulation provides a common technical language to assess the performance of construction products. It ensures that reliable information is available to professionals, public authorities, and consumers, so they can compare the performance of products from different manufacturers in different countries.
Whether in the form of steel frames or metal roofing, bitumen roofing or aggregate for use in concrete, CE Marking applies. Any structural engineer, component manufacturer or fabricator should be aware of this regulation and supply products in accordance with these regulations.
