The European Commission is consulting on the EU rules for products used in the construction of buildings and infrastructure works.
The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) aims to make the single market work for products used in the construction of buildings and infrastructure. However, a number of sources have identified issues affecting the functioning of the CPR (such as the need for clarification regarding simplification provisions, limited evidence of uptake of simplification provisions/lighter regimes by micro enterprises, the link with Regulation 1025/2012 on standardisation and mandatory use of standards in the CPR, and more).
This public consultation aims to give all interested citizens and stakeholders the opportunity to contribute to the exercise and give their views on key issues relevant for the evaluation and impact assessment. In providing this opportunity, this consultation supplements previous, more targeted consultations of stakeholders. The consultation will inform the Commission’s evaluation and impact assessment report and the legislative proposal accompanying the report, if the outcome of the evaluation points towards the need to change the EU rules on construction products.
Deadline: 16 April 2018
