The Declaration of Performance and CE marks are necessary for all products brought to market in the European Union.  

 

What is a Declaration of Performance?

The Declaration of Performance is a key part of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR).  It provides information on the performance of a product.  Each construction product covered by a European harmonised standard or for which a European Technical Assessment has been issued needs this Declaration and has to be CE marked.  This helps increase transparency and improves the functioning of the Single Market.

 

What is a CE Marking?

The CE marking indicates that a construction product is in conformity with its declared performance and that it has been assessed according to a harmonised European standards of a European Technical Assessment has been issued for it. 

 

In our next blog, we will discuss harmonised standards further.
