The Construction Products Regulation No 305/2011, is intended to make products arriving in any European Union country safe to use and install. The directive harmonizes all construction products subject to regulatory controls for CE marking purposes.
The main goal of the Construction Products Regulation is to improve the framework conditions for the competitiveness of the construction and construction products industries. The regulation requires that construction products are suitable for use in construction works. Therefore, the essential requirements regarding safety, public health, protection of citizens, and the environment must be fulfilled.
The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) lays down harmonised rules for the marketing of construction products in the EU. The Regulation provides a common technical language to assess the performance of construction products. It ensures that reliable information is available to professionals, public authorities, and consumers, so they can compare the performance of products from different manufacturers in different countries.
