CP-DS: Legislation on substances in construction products

The CP-DS database is designed to help all interested parties to identify all relevant regulations in the field of dangerous substances in construction products.

About CP-DS

The relevant safety levels for the emission of dangerous substances from construction products into indoor air, soil and (ground water as well as radiation from these products are either laid down in the relevant European legislation (chemicals, workers protection, environment) or national laws (i.e. building codes, specific requirements for construction products or materials).

Under the Construction Products Regulation common assessment methods are developed by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), and are used in European harmonised standards and by the European Organisation for Technical Assessment (EOTA) in European Assestment Documents.

The information in the database regarding the European and notified national regulations and national contact points has been provided by the regulators of the countries involved. The European Commission (DG for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, unit Clean Technologies and Products) maintains the database and publishes its content on the Internet.

Our goal is to keep this information up-to-date and accurate as possible. If errors are brought to our attention, we will try to correct them. All interested parties are asked to continuously give their comments on the content of the database.
