Construction Products Regulation Are you ready for July 2013?

• From July 2013, CE MARKING of construction products covered by harmonised European Standards is mandatory.
• Manufacturers, importers and distributors have new obligations and responsibilities when placing a construction product on the market.
• Designers, specifiers and builders must be aware and understand the new requirements on construction products.

The EU Construction Products Regulation (No. 305/2011 - CPR) lays down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and is directly applicable1 in its entirety in Irish law. It is therefore essential that all parties to the construction product supply chain learn and understand its requirements in order to allow sufficient preparation time for compliance as this can take up to several months to achieve.

This information paper is aimed at:
• Manufacturers,
• Importers,
• Distributors,
• Builders, Specifiers and Designers and provides basic information on the CPR for each of these stakeholder groups to assist in their preparations for 1 July 2013.
