CE Marking and the Construction Products Regulation (CPR)

On 1st July 2013, it became a legal requirement for construction products within the scope of harmonised European Standards to carry CE marking if they are to be placed on the market in the UK or Europe.

Additionally, innovative products not covered by a harmonised standard but which have successfully achieved a European Technical Assessment must also carry the CE mark.

BRE Global is notified as a test laboratory, a certification body, and is also a technical assessment body (TAB); we offer an extensive range of services to support construction product manufacturers, importers and distributors with CE marking.

The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) requires all construction products covered by a harmonised European standard to have a declaration of performance (DoP) drawn up and to be CE marked (European Conformity marked). Construction products covered by this regulation cannot be legally sold in the UK or within the rest of the Europe if they do not comply, even if the product is an established one.

This is a legal requirement and applies to manufacturers, importers, or distributors of affected construction products placed on the market in the UK and Europe. 

Manufacturers, importers and distributors may also CE mark their products where they are assessed to meet the requirements of an applicable EOTA-approved European Assessment Document (EAD) (including existing European Technical Assessment Guidelines, or ETAGs).
