WHAT IS CPR: CONSTRUCTION PRODUCT REGULATION?

Construction Product Regulation (CPR) is a regulation issued by the European Union with the purpose of regulating the limits of fire resistance and dangerous substances in the materials used in construction.

This covers Cabling which includes;

  • Power
  • Telecommunication
  • Data
  • Control

CPR is the new European Union classification and labeling standard for permanently-installed IT, video and cables, classifying their fire performance, application, acidity rating, droplets rating and smoke rating. CPR also designates minimum performance levels for these standards in different installations and location types.

For all cables delivered to market on or after July 1, 2017, manufacturers are to include a Certificate of Performance that declares performance for each category. This information will also appear on cable jacketing, labels and boxes.
