The Construction Products Regulation (CPR 305/2011/EU), published by the European Parliament on 9 March 2011, repeals the Construction Products Directive (CPD 89/106/EEC) and enacts stricter rules on the construction industry.
The main goal of the regulation is to further unify member states and create an environment of free trade without hindrance of national laws. Specifically, the new regulation aims to improve three areas.
The new requirements of the new regulation went into effect 20 days after publication (March 2011); however, articles 3 to 28, 36 to 38, 56 to 63, 65, 66, and annexes I, II, III, and V are not yet in force. The regulation will completely replace the construction products directive (CPD 89/106/EEC) on 1 July 2013. In the meantime, manufacturers must draft the appropriate documents and ensure compliance.
