REPORT on the implementation of Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products
The EU Parliament approved a report "on the implementation of Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products" calling for construction products to meet minimum standards for the environment, health and safety.
Almost the entire parliament voted in favour – with just four MEPs voting against and five abstaining.
The report, drawn up by German EPP member Christian Doleschal, urges the commission to improve the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), in part by introducing new requirements on “environmental performance and sustainability criteria across the lifecycle of products into the harmonised standards for specific product categories” under the regulation.
MEPs call for products to be sourced, manufactured, reused and recycled in a more sustainable manner. They also stress that health, safety and environmental aspects should be considered in future information and performance requirements.
The commission is expected to publish its proposal to revise the regulation in the third quarter of this year.
