The European Commission has launched a public consultation (open to all citizens, companies and organisations, based on a short questionnaire) on options for updating the EU Construction Products Regulation (305/2011).
This follows the consultation of stakeholders already organized in 2017 (see pinfa response in pinfa Newsletter n°84). The consultation presentation and online questionnaire refer to construction products’ safety and environmental impact, but fire and smoke are not mentioned. The consultation seems to target single market, trade and regulatory issues, but the online questionnaire does allow respondents to indicate the importance of e.g. product performance, safety, environment, insulation. This consultation is open online to 16th April 2018.
