The Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 (CPR) – replacing the Construction Products Directive 89/106/EEC (CPD) is laying down harmonized conditions for the marketing of construction products.

As part of the Better Regulation initiative, the CPR provides more clarification of the concepts and the use of CE marking; introduces simplified procedures, which will reduce the costs incurred by enterprises, in particular small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
