An introduction to: CPR (Construction Products Regulation)

Under the European Construction Products Regulation (CPR), it will become mandatory for manufacturers to apply CE marking to any products covered by a harmonised European standard (hEN). The CPR will apply to all cables placed for sale on the market for use in fixed installation in domestic, commercial and industrial premises anywhere in the European Union, including power, communications and fibre optic cables and applies to all cables irrespective of the place of manufacture. These tests must in most cases will be carried out by an independent Notified Body.

BASEC is a candidate Notified Body for the CPR and for over 40 years it has been a global leader in the testing and certification of cables. We have recently invested heavily in new equipment to allow us to test to all the requirements of the CPR in respect of cables. BASEC will provide a full service to manufacturers and traders under the CPR.
