Enquiry into national regulations for Construction Products

During its last plenary meeting in June 2011, CEN/TC 69 discussed whether industrial valves must be considered as Construction Products. CEN/TC 69 launched an enquiry within CEN/TC 69 to determine which European countries have a national regulation (CPR) considering industrial valves (metallic and thermoplastic) as Construction Products.

Only Czech Republic answered having a National Regulation which, despite request from CEN/TC 69 secretariat, was not provided for review. Germany has a regulation which is not national, but regional. Moreover there has been no request on the market for valves CE-marked under CPR.

At its June 2012 meeting therefore CEN/TC 69 decided to stop its work of drafting harmonized standards under CPR. If in the future there is a request on the market for valves CE-marked under CPR, then CEN/TC 69 will resume its work on valves for CPR.
