Revision of the Construction Products Directive (CPD)

Published:
13 October, 2008
Policies and Issues:
Construction Products Regulation (CPR)

Construction products are within the remit of Orgalime constituency. It is a heterogeneous sector which includes a wide variety of products, including structural metal products, which includes the manufacture of metal structures and parts of structures, metal building and construction products in general.

Orgalime is therefore following the developments under the Construction Products Directive and the ongoing discussions about a foreseen revision of the directive. We welcome a revision of the existing directive if it achieves reliable and harmonised EU legislation in the field of construction products.

Orgalime welcomes the European Commission’s commitment to avoiding the situation of different national implementations and interpretations which persisted under the original directive and has for a long time given rise to significant problems and barriers to trade for European manufacturers. The European industry needs a clear and harmonised framework with clear and harmonized definitions. This is of crucial importance for the competitiveness of European construction products manufacturers. On this basis we welcome the Regulation.
