CEN publishes five Technical Specifications on Assessment of release of dangerous substances under Construction Products Regulation

12 September 2018

CEN/TC 351 'Construction Products - Assessment of release of dangerous substances' is devoted to developing modular horizontal test methods. It has just published five Technical Specifications on Assessment of release of dangerous substances under the Construction Products Regulation.

'Horizontal' in this case means that these methods can be used for a wide range of materials and products with certain properties, whereas 'modular' means that a test standard developed with this approach concerns a specific step in assessing a property instead of the whole chain of measurement (from sampling to analyses). This approach aims at avoiding work duplications within different Technical Committees that focus on specific products.

CEN/TC 351 has now published following five technical specifications (TS):

CEN/TS 17195:2018 - Construction products: Assessment of release of dangerous substances - Analysis of inorganic substances in eluates;
CEN/TS 17196:2018 - Construction products: Assessment of release of dangerous substances - Digestion by aqua regia for subsequent analysis of inorganic substances;
CEN/TS 17197:2018 - Construction products: Assessment of release of dangerous substances - Analysis of inorganic substances in digests and eluates - Analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma - Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES);
CEN/TS 17200:2018 - Construction products: Assessment of release of dangerous substances - Analysis of inorganic substances in digests and eluates - Analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma - Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS);
CEN/TS 17201:2018 - Construction products: Assessment of release of dangerous substances - Content of inorganic substances - Methods for analysis of aqua regia digests.


These TSs have been developed in response to EC mandate M/366, supporting the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation (EU Regulation No. 305/2011) covering the aspect of 'dangerous substances' within CE Marking Europe-wide. Participants to CEN/TC 351 include experts from the construction products industry and test laboratories, regulators at European and national levels and environmentally aware consumers. Its Secretariat is currently held by NEN, the national standardisation body for The Netherlands.
