Review of the CPR

Review of the CPR

Following the publication of the July 2016 implementation report, the communication 'clean energy for all Europeans' announced a possible revision of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) in November 2016.

Subsequently, the Commission decided in 2016 to launch an evaluation and an impact assessment. Due to the complexity of the process, the evaluation and the impact assessment were later decoupled. 

The evaluation was finalised and published in October 2019. The review process was confirmed by the European green deal in December 2019 and the circular economy action plan in March 2020.
