CE marking for Construction Products Regulation
The EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR) was implemented to make the trade and movement of construction products within the European single market easier and quicker.
The aim of the CPR is to confirm the dependability of information relating to the performance of construction products. This is delivered through harmonized European construction product standards and European Technical Assessments (ETA) via uniform assessment methods which use a common technical language.
CE marking your construction product
The CPR requires manufacturers of products covered by a harmonized standard and manufacturers who have obtained a ETA for their product, to draw up a Declaration of Performance (DoP).
These manufacturers are required to take on the responsibility for the assessment of their products and for the conformity of their products with the declared performances. The organization needs to show that it has done this by providing CE marking.
The CE marking construction products certification scheme covers the following products:
- Roof trusses
- Metal web beams
- Timber frame
- Visual strength grading
- Machine strength grading
- Joist hangers
- European Technical Approval/Assessments.
