Guide to new CE Marking legislation

In July 2013, the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) fully replaced the Construction Products Directive (CPD) - making it compulsory for all glass construction products (including architectural and insulating glass units) and road marking materials (ballotini) manufactured or imported into the EEA, that are covered by a harmonised European Standard (hEN), to carry the CE mark.   Previously, manufacturers and processors were able to self-certify or simply opt-out, but now legal action could be taken against manufacturers, their agents and notified bodies if a product does not have the appropriate EC Declaration of Conformity for its intended use and carry the CE mark.With many throughout the supply-chain still unaware of this new legislation, Glass Technology Services Ltd (GTS) - one of few providers in the sector to hold a Notified Testing Laboratory status - explains the importance of having appropriate declaration of conformity for its intended use and the CE Mark.This simple introduction to the CPR changes is available online at: www.glass-ts.com/glass-cpr-and-ce-markingFor relevant news, information and details of our specialist services throughout the glass supply chain please visit www.glass-ts.com, follow us @GlassTesting, subscribe to our newsletter or contact us – tel: +44 (0) 114 290 1801, email: enquiries@glass-ts.com.
