CE Markings and The Construction Products Regulation


Life after Brexit


23rd May 2022




Any construction product within the European Economic Area (EEA) must comply with the EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR). This law states that all products traded or sold in Europe must bear a CE mark, when a harmonised standard exists for this product.  A CE mark indicates that a product complies with the regulation. 

In general, most companies need to be aware of CE Marking in circumstances such as construction of new buildings, modifications to existing buildings, the equipment running the building (such as compressors, HVAC etc), the equipment within a building (manufacturing), and the products manufactured.

This intensive one-day course will give you an informative overview of the CPR and the CE marking process, and will answer questions such as what is CE marking and does it apply to you?

What if no standard applies to your product?

We will also discuss the impact on the manufacturing process as well as responsibilities of various parties involved.

This highly informative course will examine these issues and more, and all attendees will receive full course notes to refer to at any time.
