The 2013 Construction Product Regulation (CPR) aims at giving reliable information on the performance of construction products including legal responsibilities for manufacturers, importers and suppliers.
Harmonized technical specifications (i.e. EN standards) provide a “common technical language” with uniform assessment methods for establishing the performance of construction products. This common technical language has to be used by:
- Manufacturers when declaring their products performance (DoP - Declaration of Performance) for intended end-use
- Member States authorities when specifying requirements
- Users (constructors, architects, technicians) when selecting products most adequate for their intended use in construction works.
