What is CPR? Construction Product Regulation for Cable Fire Behaviour

6th January 2017

Since July 2016 the new European standards for the classification of fire behaviour have been officially applicable. As of the effective date, 1 July 2017, only cables tested and classified in accordance with the new standards can be marketed in Europe.

The 'Construction Products Regulation: Clear Labelling of Cable Fire Safety Cable Classes' applies to energy, control and communications cables intended for permanent installation. European test laboratories are accredited to test cables and assign the new 'Euroclasses'. Since February 2017 Datwyler has gradually been incorporating the "Declarations of Performance" (DoP’s) on its cables, on data sheets and on the website.
