Since 1 July 2013, the Construction Products Regulation (Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011 – CPR) has required that CE marking be affixed to all products delivered in accordance with a harmonised standard (e.g. EN 10025 for structural steel). This CE marking guarantees the properties described in the declaration of performance submitted by the manufacturer for the uses defined in the standard.
