The Construction Product Regulations have now been in force since 2013, and represent a significant change in how such products are placed on the market. The scope of the regulations is considerable due to the size of the business sector and therefore the number of businesses it will have affected is likely to be significant too.
If your business manufactures or imports products caught by the regulations, it is essential that you ensure compliance with the requirements. If you are unsure if your products are caught by the scope we advise that you take steps to check. Industry guidance can be found here, which has been put together to assist in understanding the requirements and the implications, such as CE marking and the systems of Assessment. The guidance has been put together by the Construction Products Association, The Trading Standards Institute and a number of other trade bodies.
It is important to remember that failure to comply with the regulations is a criminal offence, which this service has a duty to enforce.
