Testing performance, declaring performance and comparing performance
Manufacturers have been obliged to guarantee that their products conform to the requirements of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) since the legislation was first introduced. Among other requirements a manufacturer must issue a declaration of performance. This is an integral part of the CE marking process.
Only CE marked products can be marketed in the European trading area. The leading manufacturers of technical insulation materials made of flexible elastomeric foams (FEF) and polyethylene foams (PEF) ensure that their products display the CE mark.
The European FEF/PEF Interest Group, “CEFEP”, strongly supports CE marking. CEFEP also promotes harmonised standards and provides a definitive source of information from the FEF/PEF insulation industry.
