CE Marking and the Construction Products Regulation
CE Marking now mandatory
In July 2013 CE marking of construction products became mandatory throughout the EU.
The Construction Products Regulation, otherwise known as Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council, lays down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repeals Council Directive 89/106/EEC (known as the Construction Products Directive). CE marking will be required on a mandatory basis for construction products for which harmonised standards are in place. The CPR aims to ensure that more reliable performance-related data is made available in relation to construction products being placed on the European market.
The procedures that must be followed to CE mark a construction product can be very complex, depending on the system of Assessment and verification of constancy of performance. Testing by a Notified Body may be required, a Declaration of Performance will need to be developed, and a Factory Production Control procedure will generally need to be implemented.
