After four years of absence, EBC and SBS have the pleasure to announce the SBS Construction Forum 2023! This event will happen both in SBS premises in Brussels and online, in November 20, from 14:00 to 17:00, as part of the Meeting Standards campaign of SBS.
EBC and SBS are inviting you to this Forum dedicated to the revision of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), with a focus on the potential implications for construction SMEs & crafts of the ongoing revision.
The core objective of this edition of the SBS Construction Forum is to bring together stakeholders from various backgrounds to engage in a pragmatic discussion about the proposed CPR changes and to increase awareness and understanding of their potential impacts. The conversation will focus on two key themes highlighted by the revised CPR: the inclusion of sustainability requirements and the need of initiatives supporting the digitalisation of construction processes.
The currently in progress revision of the CPR seems to introduce sweeping changes with potential profound implications for both construction product manufacturers and their users. Considering that most companies in the construction sector are small and medium-sized enterprises and crafts, such changes would have far-reaching impacts on their day-to-day operations.
Of equal importance is the fact that any successful implementation of the CPR hinges on the establishment and adherence to standards. This is why understanding the proposed changes and their potential implications is of utmost significance to all construction SMEs and experts.
Join us for an insightful discussion on the future of construction products and standards and their impact on small and medium-sized enterprises in the sector!
While we hope to see you in person at the SBS meeting rooms in Brussels (limited number of seats), the Forum will be in Hybrid format, offering interpretation services in English, French, Italian, and German, to encourage and enable an extensive EU-wide participation of construction SME representatives across Europe.
