Construction Products Regulation, CE Marking and DOPs

Since 1 July 2013, under the Construction Products Regulation 2011 (CPR), it is mandatory for all manufacturers to apply CE marking to any of their construction products that are covered by a harmonised European Standard (hEN) or voluntary where the product conforms to a European Technical Assessment (ETA) exists and is applicable to that product.

Manufacturers of construction products are not obliged to gain an ETA, and in the situations where neither a hEN or ETA exists, manufacturers cannot apply a CE mark to the product.

CE marking is not mandatory under certain circumstances, even where a relevant hEN is available. Article 5 of the Construction Products Regulations gives full details of these exceptions.

Hambleside Danelaw will issue or affix a CE mark to all products where applicable, however only rooflights products currently manufactured by Hambleside Danelaw are covered by a harmonised European Standard and none of the remaining product ranges are covered by a European Technical Assessment.

BS EN 1013:2012, ‘Light transmitting single skin profiled plastic sheets for internal and external roofs, walls and ceilings – Requirements and test methods’ a recently harmonised European standard was published in 2013 with a period of co-existence from 1st September 2013 to 1st September 2014. This covers profiled GRP and polycarbonate in-plane single skin sheets used for single skin applications or as the external layer or liner of a rooflight or wall light, and has subsequently be reissued as BS EN 1013:2012+A1:2014.
