Transcript of Construction Products Regulations (CPR) 2011

Construction Products Regulations
A quick overview of the new requirements and implications
How to
demonstrate compliance
Criteria covered
Through European standards (hENs) or Technical Approvals (ETA) resulting in the product being entitled to carry the mark.
Mechanical resistance and stability
Fire safety
Hygiene, health and environmental impact
Safety in use and accessibility
Protection against noise
Energy efficiency
Sustainable use of natural resources
The regulation applies to manufacturers, distributers and suppliers.

The CE marking regime has been extended and become mandatory in many areas where it was voluntary before
Demonstrating safety is already required under the General Product Safety Regulations (GPSR) 2005
Additional burden on businesses
The CPR 2011 was published in the EU Official Journal in April 2011. It is fully in force in all member states since 1 July 2013 and replaces the former Construction Products Directive.
Demonstrate and
by complying
All products (materials, kit) used have to be safe and fit for purpose
But what about
Building Regulations?
The UK building regs deal with works, not products. They mandate how an installation should perform, but do not specify the characteristics of the products to use.
(CPR) 2011
the Essentials Characteristics
the Basic Requirements for Construction Works (BRCW)
Where European standards do not exist, compliance can be demonstrated by
national approvals
manufacturer's declarations using assessment methods of their own choice (adapting existing standards or developing their own test methods)
Note Article 2 (Definitions), 16. :
‘making available on the market’ means any supply of a construction product for distribution or use on the Union market in the course of a commercial activity, whether in return for payment or free of charge
Further information:
There can be no product or material used in building work that escapes formality – the requirement to satisfy at least basic safety requirements.
