The European Commission's DG Growth held a consultation on the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), carried out by UK consultancy company Risk & Policy Analysts (RPA), and invited all stakeholders to give feedback by 18 December 2014. Although the CPR recently entered into force, the Commission is already keen to analyse how the CPR is being implemented based on the experience of key stakeholders in different member states. CU replied to this consultation and indicated that a simplified CE marking containing minimum mandatory information is needed to reduce the burdens placed on construction products manufacturers.
Following the online consultation, RPA and the European Commission organised a workshop on 23 March in Brussels to present the preliminary results of the CPR consultation. The European Commission, public authorities and representatives from various industries came together to discuss the obstacles found with the implementation of this regulation.
