Review of the Construction Products Regulation< back to news

The Department of Housing Planning and Local Government advise of some future developments relating to Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 (known as the Constructions Products Regulations or “the CPR”)


The European Commission is reviewing Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 (known as the Construction Products Regulation or the "CPR").

The review process of the CPR was confirmed by the European green deal in December 2019 and the circular economy action plan in March 2020.


See: Video presentation from the EC providing an overview of the review process 


While no agreement has yet been reached on the specifics of a revision of the CPR, the EC have prepared a document assessing the impact and the preparation of a new proposal. The purpose of this document is to provide a continuing open dialogue with industry and other stakeholders to inform the discussions.


The review of the CPR aims to address the issues identified in the 2019 evaluation (available via this link), and improve how the single market for construction products functions.


It is important to understand the preferences and expected impacts of the policy options from as many relevant and interested stakeholders as possible.


The EC invites stakeholder feedback on the refined indicative options outlined in this document, via a survey, which is open until 25 December 2020.


Separately, to facilitate awareness of stakeholder opinion, the Department of Housing Planning and Local Government would be grateful, if you would consider sending a copy of your response to this EU survey to
