Construction Product Regulation

The Construction Products Regulations (CPR) lays down harmonized rules for the marketing of construction products in the EU. With new rules being implemented by the European Commission (EC), construction products- including cabling for fixed installations- can no longer be used in European buildings or civil engineering works if they are not tested and certified according to the new CPR rules.

CPR fiery cable Replacing the Construction Products Directive (CPD), which was first published by the EC in 1989, CPR became applicable for non-cable products in July 2013 and officially came into force for fixed installation cable products in June 2016. A 12-month grace period was given which ends 1st July 2017, from this point all CPR applicable cable products sold must be tested and Certified to the new CPR rules.

All CPR applicable products will require a Euroclass rating, CE marking and a Declaration of Performance.

Declaration of Performance

A Declaration of Performance requires the manufacturer, importer or distributor to assume legal responsibility for the conformity of the construction product with its declared performance.
