Building and construction cables manufactured after 1st July 2017 are subject to the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). CPR covers all construction products, including electrical cables, classifying them by their reaction to fire. Any products already on the market prior to this date can continue to be sold and supplied without reference to CPR.
If you're in any doubt, please contact our experts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and they will demonstrate traceability and compliance.
The aim is to create harmonized product standards across Europe and help buyers make better-informed decisions. Products will be classified from A to F depending on their flame characteristics with additional classifications for their smoke, flaming droplets, and acidity.
Compliance with CPR is mandatory and has implications throughout the supply chain but the majority of the responsibilities lie with manufacturers, importers, and distributors. They have a legal requirement to ensure it is only CPR compliant cables placed on the market from 1st July onwards, in addition to complying with the other standards and regulations the cables must meet.
