Frequently Asked Questions
Does it apply to you?
The CPR has a broad scope applying to many types of products and materials from bricks and mortar to the kitchen sink.
It is only applicable to products for which a harmonised technical standard (hENs) exists.
There are approximately 460 hENs currently; eventually this will increase to around 600.
We are creating our Declarations of Performance (DoP's) and applying the CE Marking to our products. Do we have to register the DoP and number with a Notified Body?
The CPR requires each DoP to have an identifying number / code. However the format and numbering system are entirely up to you. These do not need to be approved, or registered by a notified body.
