The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) has been adopted by the European Commission and UK Government from the 1st July 2013 to ensure that construction products meet the CE requirements of the new Regulation.
According to the Regulation, the requirement for CE marking will apply to:
“any product or kit which is produced and placed on the market for incorporation in a permanent manner in construction works or parts thereof and the performance of which has an effect on the performance of the construction works with respect to the basic requirements for construction works.”
So any flat roofing products that fall under this definition that are placed on the market from July 2013 and are covered by a harmonised standard EN 13956 : 2012 “Flexible sheet for waterproofing – Plastic and rubber sheets for waterproofing”, must be accompanied by a Declaration of Performance and will need to display the CE mark.
