Construction Products Regulation / harmonized standards
(EU) 305/2011 BauPVO
The Construction Products Regulation (EU) 305/2011 addresses products that are permanently incorporated into structures or parts thereof and whose performance coincides with the basic services of a structure. However, only products for whose performance there are harmonized standards or European building regulations are affected. It is a CE regulation, i.e. it requires a declaration of performance and CE marking for the product.
These products are affected by the EU Construction Products Regulation
Nearly all products that can be installed or attached to structures are generally within the scope of this regulation.
- Water pipes
- and many others
Legally compliant implementation of the Construction Products Regulation (BauPVO)
The Construction Products Regulation requires the product concerned to comply with at least one harmonized standard or European construction regulation. These must be selected and their compliance documented, e.g. by means of test reports. The findings from the test reports are part of the technical documentation of the product and form the basis of the declaration of performance to be drawn up.
