CE Marking of building materials

CertiMaC is Notified Body No. 2685 CPR (EU) 305/2011
CE Marking of building materials

The CE mark certifies that a construction product can legally be placed on the market of EEA Member States and indicates that the product is in line with the data provided in its Declaration of Performance (DoP) is released by the Producer.
The CE mark must be clearly visible and indelible on the product.

The production, marketing and distribution of all building materials is subject to mandatory and evolving legislation. 
Currently, the main legal instrument governing the European construction industry is the Construction Products Regulation [CPR (EU) 305/2011] which has replaced, from 1 July 2013, the Construction Products Directive [CPD 89 / 106 / EEC]. 
The Construction Products Regulation (CPR), based on the principles of the Construction Products Directive (CPD), introduces novelties, clarifications, simplifications and obligations for the various economic operators (manufacturers, agents, distributors, importers) operating in the European Construction. 
Only if it meets the requirements of the CPR Rules and the corresponding Harmonized Technical Standards, materials may be CE Marked and marketed in European Economic Area countries (even if produced outside the EU).

The objective of the regulation is to guarantee the quality and safety of construction, with particular attention to the protection of workers, consumers and the environment, through the compliance of construction products with the minimum requirements set for all countries in the European Economic area.
CE Marking of building materials DECLARATION OF PERFORMANCE (DoP)

The CPR stipulates that the DoP - Declaration of Performance is the key document to provide designers and manufacturers with the information necessary to determine whether a given product meets the minimum pre-set requirements "when properly installed, maintained, and used for the purpose expected". 

These minimum requirements for building materials as indicated in the CPR are:

1.       Mechanical resistance and stabililty
2.       Safety in the case of fire
3.       Hygiene, health and the environment
4.       Safety and accessibility in use
5.       Protection against noise
6.       Energy economy and heat retention
7.       Sustainable use of natural resources

The information that the manufacturer must provide in the CE marking is given in the specific EC harmonized technical standards.
