The EU public consultation on the review of the CPR is open to 22nd December 2020. This follows the Evaluation of the Regulation, published in 2019 which concluded that the regulation does facilitate an EU market but identifies problems with development of harmonised EU standards for implementation. Links to Green Deal and Circular Economy Action Plan objectives are emphasised in the consultation. In the preparatory ‘Roadmap’ consultation, pinfa expressed support for environmental objectives and underlined the importance of improving fire safety. The current public consultation offers two questionnaires: a shorter public questionnaire, and a more detailed technical questionnaire.
