Regulation laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products

Outcome of Proceedings: Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products

This legislative initiative reviews the rules of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), adopted in 2011. Following the publication of the evaluation of the Regulation in 2019, the review process was confirmed in the European Green Deal and is one of the deliverables of the new Circular Economy Action Plan. The revision of the CPR will also play a role in the Strategy for a Sustainable Built Environment.

The Parliament and the Council reached a provisional political agreement during the third trilogue held on the file, on 13 December. Co-legislators agreed on the need to speed up the standardisation procedure, by allowing the Commission to adopt harmonised technical specifications on its own, via implementing acts. Furthermore, the adopted text endorses the creation of a construction products digital passport system and empowers the Commission to establish mandatory minimum environmental sustainability criteria for the public procurement of construction works. The text also covers reused and remanufactured products and introduces a transition period of 15 years from the date of entry into force of the new regulation (until 2039). The provisional agreement was adopted in IMCO on 13 February and in Plenary on 10 April 2024. Coreper endorsed the agreement on 2 February 2024 and the file will now have to be formally adopted by a Council configuration.
