Harmonized European Standards under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR) - Essentials for drafting standards

The one-day workshop, organised by CEN-CENELEC and Construction Products Europe, included:

  • a discussion on lessons learnt from past non-citations of harmonized standards in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU);
  • an informative presentation on recent updates within the construction sector related to mandates and standards;
  • the provision of guidance to the technical experts for drafting of Harmonized European Standards (hENs) in support of CPR (e.g. classes and thresholds and dangerous substances).


Action 5 of the ‘Joint Initiative on Standardisation’ (JIS) under the Single Market Strategy, aims at aiding the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation - CPR (EU) 305/2011 - through standards. One of the focal points under this JIS action concerns the provision of guidance to standardizers working within the construction sector to ensure a common understanding on the role of harmonized standards in the CPR context.
