Euralarm at CEN-CENELEC Construction Product Regulation event

Written by

A workshop took place this week in Brussels with the target to bring all involved parties on the same page concerning the Construction Product Regulation (CPR).

The well attended event brought together a full room of Industry representatives and other European stakeholders, who were joined through an online webinar by a large audience. It was chaired by Gonçalo Asecençao, CEN-CENELEC Customer Service Specialist.

EU Commission and CEN-CENELEC officials explained the current status on CPR processes and new improvements. They highlighted how key stakeholders can help to move forwards and reduce the existing backlog.

A keynote speech providing a legal perspective was delivered by Georgios Katasarakis, Policy officer at the EU Commission’s Directorate General for the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW). He explained how Harmonised European Standards provide a solid technical base for manufacturers to test the performance of their products. The presentations highlighted the main principles of the CPR and how they should be reflected in standardisation work. In the course of this full-day workshop, several other presentations provided a good overview on the current status of the Construction Products Regulation and provided the framework to share best practices.
 
The fire Industry as represented by Euralarm has noted serious challenges with the CPR, several of Euralarm’s Members attended this meeting and made their voice heard. Euralarm is working together with other CPR stakeholders, CEN-CENELEC and the European Commission to see how it can overcome existing obstacles.
