CPR

CPR (Construction Product Regulation) is the new European legislation laying down the basic requirements and harmonised essential characteristics that all products intended for construction must comply within the scope of the EU, with the objective of providing more fire safety.

Summary

New European legislation in effect from 1st July 2017.

It regulates and establishes the characteristics to be complied with by the building materials regarding fire safety.

New euroclasses A, B, C, D, E and F.

New marking and labelling of wires and packaging.

Declarations of Performance (DoP) made available by the manufacturer.

Regulated features

Reaction against fire

  • Contribution to fire propagation by the heat emitted in the wire's own combustion and by the detachment of incandescent particles.
  • Quantity and transparency of the emitted fumes.
  • Acidity of the released gases.

Fire resistance

Ability of a wire to maintain the facility's electrical service during a fire.

Hazardous substances

Emission and content

It indicates which components and in what proportion are emitted under normal conditions of use by the wires, not in case of fire, with the aim of preserving the environment.

(Pending legal development)

New euroclases
A, B, C, D, E, and F

The CPR entails the creation of new classes referred to as euroclases

  • Aca

    No reaction

  • B1ca

    Very low reaction

    Non-flame propagator. Non-fire propagator (1,75m).
    Very low heat emission.

  • B2ca

    Low reaction

    Non-flame propagator. Non-fire propagator (1,5m).
    Low heat emission.

  • Cba

    Reduced reaction

    Non-flame propagator. Non-fire propagator (2m).
    Reduced heat emission.

  • Dca

    Improved reaction

    Non-flame propagator.
    Improved heat emission.

  • Eca

    Basic reaction

    Non-flame propagator.

  • Fca

    Undetermined

Additional classes

Three additional classification levels are established:

  • s

    Fumes opacity

  • d

    Particle drop

  • a

    Fumes acidity

Who certifies these features?

The CPR regulated characteristics must be certified by Performance Evaluation and Verification Systems (PEVS).

Several European organisations have applied for and obtained recognition as a Notified Entity or Laboratory.

In Spain the external Notified Entity is AENOR and the External Notified Laboratory is CEIS (Center for Testing, Innovation and Services).

DoP Declaration of Performance

Revi makes available the DoP for each product in the Documentation section of this website, and in the individual pages of each product.

New marking and labelling

Revi has adapted the marking of its wires and the labelling of its packaging in order to offer the maximum guarantee when purchasing electrical wires that comply with the CPR.
In each one of our labels you will find:

  • CE marking
  • CPR
