pinfa supports reinforcing the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) as central to ensuring building fire safety. The pinfa response to the public consultation is aligned with the arguments of CPE (Construction Products Europe) and emphasises that the CPR currently provides a Common Technical Language and standards, enabling each EU Member State to define appropriate fire safety requirements, whilst enabling a single EU market both for construction products and for fire safety solutions for these products. pinfa notes its support for communicating environmental performance (e.g. using the existing standard EN 15804) and developing recycling, both of which are possible within the current CPR framework.
