CPR: EUROPEAN CONSTRUCTION PRODUCTS REGULATION
The Delegated Regulation Act N. 157/2014/UE has defined the different ways to make the Declarations of Performance (DoP), released by the manufacturer according to CPR 305/2011/UE, available.
MAPEI UK in aligning with the new rules and trying to increase the customer’s and user’s satisfaction, has introduced three main changes / innovations:
1. We no longer ask users to download a heavy zipped file to extract the DoP: now you just have to search the needed product on the web site and open the product sheet. The link for the DoP is close to the Technical Data Sheet and Safety Data Sheet.
2. In addition to the current DoP, available in the languages of the European selling countries, all the previous versions can be viewed by clicking on “see archive”
To retrieve from the archive the DoP corresponding to the CE marking printed on the packaging of a specific period, the DoP to be downloaded is the one with the closest publication date to the one printed on the packaging.
3. DoP are available as PDF validated through an “electronic signature”, therefore all the printed copies are fully and legally valid both in UK and in all the foreign countries which recognize such electronic signature.Reminder
- CE marking of the construction products is restricted to the ones that are covered by a harmonized standard. Very common construction products like joints for ceramic tiles, resilient or wood adhesives, cured concrete and so on, are not currently CE marked and, as a consequence of that, it is impossible to issue the relevant DoP .
We trust this new platform will make the downloading and the consultancy of the DoP easier and more reliable and will contribute to reduce waste of paper and natural resources.
In the event of a problem to download the DoP, please do not hesitate to contact us at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
