The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) is Regulation No. 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the European Council of 9 March 2011 that lays down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and replaces the Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC). The CPR is designed to simplify and clarify the existing framework for the placing on the market of construction products.[1]

Provisions of the Construction Products Regulation seek to:

  • Clarify the affixing of CE marking to construction products.
  • Introduce the need to issue a declaration of performance as a basis for CE marking.
  • Define clear rules for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) systems applicable to construction products (formerly Attestation of Conformity AoC).
  • Define the role and responsibilities of manufacturers, distributors, importers, notified bodies, technical assessment bodies, market surveillance and Member States' authorities as regards the application of this EU regulation.
  • Introduce simplified procedures enabling cost reductions for businesses, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
  • Provide a clear framework for the harmonised technical specifications (harmonised standards and European Assessment Documents).
