Declaration of Performance (DoP) and CE mark:
Manufacturers have reported concern that some wallcovering products are being placed on the market in the EU without Declaration of Performance or CE mark. It is not known whether this is through ignorance of the requirements of the Construction Products Regulation or exploitation of a derogation (Article 5)in the CPR.
Previous advice from IGI indicated that individual product offered on the internet as custom made and supplied direct to the user may use this derogation. A recent proposal from BSI by two experts on the CPR and its predecessor the CPD suggests that the derogation is much more limited in its scope.
Publication of the proposal indicates that CE non- compliance is possibly a general problem for construction product manufacturers.
