Construction Products Regulation

Construction products

Construction Products Regulation (the CPR) pdf български (bg) czech (cs) dansk (da) Deutsch (de) eesti (et) ελληνικά (el) español (es) Français (fr) Gaeilge (ga) hrvatski (hr) italiano (it) latviešu (lv) lietuvių (lt) magyar (hu) Malti (mt) Nederlands (nl) polski (pl) português (pt) română (ro) slovenčina (sk) slovenščina (sl) suomi (fi) svenska (sv) is to ensure reliable information on construction products in relation to their performances. This is achieved by providing a “common technical language", offering uniform assessment methods of the performance of construction products.

These methods have been compiled in harmonised European standards (hEN) and European Assessment Documents (EAD). This common technical language is to be applied by:

  • the manufacturers when declaring the performance of their products, but also by
  • the authorities of Member States when specifying requirements for them, and by
  • their users (architects, engineers, constructors…) when choosing the products most suitable for their intended use in construction works.

The provisions of Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 prevail over any conflicting provisions in the harmonised standards.
