In June 2016, the European Commission (EC) implemented a new set of regulations applicable to construction products in the European Union (EU). These rules are identified as the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) and apply to building products used in permanent installations within European buildings or civil engineering works.
Effective July 1, 2017, any cable products defined within the CPR scope cannot be installed in European buildings unless compliant to the regulations.
As a wire and cable manufacturer, Alpha Wire has performed extensive product and regulation research, concluding the CPR rules are not applicable to the markets and applications our standard product offering serves. Therefore, our standard product portfolio will not include certification to the CPR rules at this time.
