Accelerate the market entry of your products
The market for construction materials offers vast potentials, but it also presents significant challenges. One of the major driving forces is the growing demand for sustainable construction materials. Consumers are increasingly seeking out environmentally friendly options and are demanding credible evidence of sustainable production processes and materials. Furthermore, governmental authorities are placing a stronger emphasis on the construction industry, resulting in tighter legislation, often influenced by sustainability considerations.
For manufacturers and retailers aiming to access international markets, they must navigate a complex landscape of legal requirements. The "Construction Products Regulation" (CPR) plays a crucial role in this regard. Harmonized standards covered by the CPR state precise requirements for the product and provide guidance for evaluating construction products. This regulation is particularly noteworthy as it forms the foundation for successfully entering the lucrative EU and UK markets. Conforming to the CPR is an essential prerequisite for obtaining the CE and UKCA marks, demonstrating compliance with the regulatory standards.
Manufacturers and retailers seeking a suitable partner to test and certify their construction products are faced with numerous options. However, the challenge arises when they have multiple construction products from different product groups that require testing and certification, as this often necessitates contacting multiple institutions. This fragmented approach makes the entire process complex, inefficient, and time-consuming.
