Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC): Update to list of European harmonized standards

This morning, the European Commission published an updated list of the European harmonized standards that pertain to the Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC). The standards on this list may be used by construction products manufacturers to prove that their construction products complies with the essential requirements of this directive.

This updated list is important to all manufacturers of CE marked construction products that have used European harmonized standards to prove CE compliance. If you have applied standards to prove compliance with the aforementioned directive, we recommend you to check the new list of standards to see if any of the standard you applied have been updated, or whether there are new standards available for your products. When standards have been updated by this list, you need to re-evaluate your products against the updated standard and update your Declaration of Conformity.
