Eldra is busy preparing for CPR regulations becoming effective on 1 July 2016, with a subsequent one-year transition period.
In 2011, the European Union decided to convert the guidelines for fire behaviour of construction products from a Directive into a Regulation - the CPR (Construction Products Regulation). The EU aims to use the CPR to provide clear and reliable information relating to fire safety and performance of products in different situations. For cables, this requires testing for fire properties. The fire behaviour must be categorised into Euro classes (a though f) rather than the existing fire standards for cables in construction works.
Please download our whitepaper using the link at the bottom of the page to find more information on the key topics relating to the implementation of CPR in the Netherlands. Subjects reviewed include risk assessment for buildings and regulations, fire classifications and CE labelling. Please also find an overview of Eldra’s portfolio categorised into the new Euro classes.
If you have any questions relating to these changes, please contact our sales team or Jan Fleuren, Eldra’s Configuration Manager. Please find all contact details here.
