Review of the Construction Products Regulation

The proposal for a revised Construction Products Regulation (CPR) was adopted on 30 March 2022.


Following the publication of the July 2016 implementation report, the communication 'clean energy for all Europeans' announced a possible revision of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) in November 2016.

Subsequently, the Commission decided in 2016 to launch an evaluation and an impact assessment. Due to the complexity of the process, the evaluation and the impact assessment were later decoupled.

After the publication of the evaluation in October 2019, the European green deal confirmed the review process in December 2019 and the circular economy action plan in March 2020.

    Several Commission reports and studies supported the whole process.
