Regulation (EU) 305/2011 - construction products
The new Construction Products Regulation
Irrespective of whether you plan to label your products by hand or are looking for a fully automated solution - you can be certain that you will comply with the stipulations of the new regulation if you use label printers and labelling machines by Weber Marking Systems.
How does the regulation apply to labelling?
- The Construction Products Regulation (EU 305/2011) came into force on 1 July 2013, replacing the former Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC). It also extends the rules for CE marking.
- One of the main changes is the introduction of the need to issue a declaration of performance as a basis for CE marking. A link to the declaration of performance information can be provided, for example, in the form of a QR code together with the CE marking. However, this is not possible in Germany. The corresponding information must be presented directly on the product itself.
- The CE marking must be clearly legible and must be permanently marked on the product or attached to it on a label.
