What is it?
Any construction product sold in the European Economic Area (EEA) must compy with the EU Construction Products Regulation, or CPR. Products that comply can be CE marked.
The CPR is different from other CE marking legislation in the EU. Not only does it apply to a wide variety of products, but it requires the products to either be assessed against a harmonised standard or have an European Assessment Document/European Technical Assessment (EADS/ETA) before the CE mark can be applied.
What's a construction product?
A construction product is defined as any product or kit used in a permanent way in buildings and civil engineering works. The product must also have an effect on the basic requirements of the works, which is:
- Mechanical resistance and stability
- Safety in case of fire
- Hygiene, health and the environment
- Safety and accessibility in use
- Protection against noise
- Energy economy and heat retention
- Sustainable use of natural resources
The following are examples of construction products:
- Bitumen based products
- Fire detection/alarm systems
- Steel structures
