Learning Spotlight - A Guide to the Construction Products Regulation
Building and construction cables manufactured after 1st July 2017 are subject to the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). CPR covers all construction products, including electrical cables, classifying them by their reaction to fire. Any products already on the market prior to this date can continue to be sold and supplied without reference to CPR. Products are tested and certified with a Euroclass ranging from A to F depending on their flame characteristics (with additional classifications for their smoke, flaming droplets, and acidity as required by classification).
