The Declaration of Performance (DoP) certificate


From July 1 2013, under the Construction Products Regulation 2011 (CPR) it will be mandatory for manufacturers to produce a declaration of performance and apply CE Marking to any of their construction products that are covered by a harmonised European standard (hEN).

The CPR harmonises the methods of assessment and test, the means of declaration of performance and the system of conformity assessment of construction products. Such values must be expressed in a consistent technical language, as used in the technical specifications.

CE marking is a European regulatory mark indicating ‘fitness for intended use’ and as such signifies that appropriate, reliable performance information is being declared.

We’ve created two documents for you with all of the relevant information you require. Here is a summary of the two certificates:
