The future of the CPR and its implementation

The future of the CPR and its implementation

The EU’s Construction Products Regulation (CPR) is one of the major pieces of legislation in the construction field, because it sets the legal conditions according to which products can circulate freely within the Union. It came into force in 2013, making CE marking (and therefore the harmonised European Standards used for this) compulsory. The SBS position is that, for reasons of ‘regulatory certainty’, the CPR should not be repealed. Moreover, SBS does not support converting the CPR into a ‘product regulation’, because this would not bring any substantial benefits. Nonetheless, a number of challenges with the text of the regulation itself, and with its application, exists and SBS would like to put forward the following points. Further background and explanation of these points is given in the attached Technical Note.
