Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 (the CPR) - Workshop
Date: 23rd March 2015, 09:30 - 17:00
Location: European Commission Conference Centre Albert Borschette, Room 1D, rue Froissart 36, 1040, Brussels
On the 23rd of March, Risk & Policy Analysts (RPA) and the European Commission’s DG GROW held a one-day workshop to discuss the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 (the CPR) to date.
Although the CPR has only recently been implemented, recent legal, economic and structural/national developments have created new issues to be addressed and, as such, it is essential to assess the extent to which the CPR is meeting (or is likely to meet) its main objectives, based on the first implementation experiences. To this end, a consultation exercise was carried out from November 2014 until January 2015 to obtain the views of all stakeholders across the construction sector on how the implementation of the CPR has progressed to date. An overview of the study, including aim, objectives and approach can be found at the bottom of the page.
Following the consultation exercise, RPA has developed a number of Topical Reports, focusing on the aspects of the CPR which stakeholders have encountered the most difficulties with, in particular: CE marking, Market Surveillance, National Marks and CPR Derogations. These Topical Reports can be found at the bottom of the page. The workshop provided an opportunity for key industry representatives, public authorities and other stakeholders to share experiences and discuss challenges they face in relation to these aspects of the CPR. We would like to thank all those that attended for their contributions.
At the workshop, RPA presented some feedback on the key findings and perceptions of stakeholders’ on how the CPR has been implemented. The presentation can be found at the bottom right of this page under 'Supporting Documentation'.
