Achieve compliance to the EU Construction Products Regulation (305/2011) with CE Mark services from SGS.

Construction detail

As of July 1, 2013, any construction product to be sold or marketed within the EEA must bear the CE Mark, a mandatory conformity mark required by European law. A CE mark indicates that a product complies with EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR), also known as the Construction Products Directive. It does not necessarily mean that a product will be suitable for all end uses, but it does indicate that the product is consistent with its Declaration of Performance (DoP), as made by the manufacturer.

What does the new EU CPR mean for importers, distributors and manufacturers?

Importers and/or distributors must ensure that construction products, where required, bear the CE mark and are accompanied by the correct documentation, instructions and safety information. Distributors must also ensure that the manufacturer and the importer have complied with their requirements under the Construction Products Directive. Achieving compliance can be a complex process.
