The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) is one of the most important pieces of European legislation in the construction field, setting the legal conditions according to which products can circulate freely within the European Union. The CPR came into force in 2013 and made CE marking compulsory throughout the EU.
The CPR primarily addresses the relationship between product manufacturers and market surveillance authorities, and only indirectly covers the relationship between manufacturers and users of construction products. The requirements and provisions reflected in the regulation, however, have an impact on product specifiers/users, in particular construction SMEs, who represent the majority of EBC members. For this reason, EBC believes that the application of the CPR should ensure the free circulation of construction products and allow the internal market to function in an efficient way.
