2 Fireproof cables in accordance with EU Construction Products Regulation (CPR)

Scope of the EU Construction Products

Regulation (CPR) No. 305/2011 for

cables

With the aim of the European Union to improve

the safety of houses and public buildings,

a system for the classification of construction

products has been appropriately developed

according to the relevant fire behaviour. This

applies throughout Europe within the scope of

the Construction Products Regulation of 2011

or CPR, as it is abbreviated in English.

By means of a comprehensive certification system,

the standard ensures that only approved

products are used in the construction sector.

It specifies the classification of cables and

electrical lines in specific classifications of fire

behaviour (Euro classes from B2ca to Fca),

establishes the requirements for the required

appropriate test methods and procedures and

determines to what extent the involvement of a

notified body is required in each individual fire

behaviour classification. It also requires the CE

marking of cables.

XBK-KABEL already has cable constructions

these days that contain high-quality

materials which ensure improved fire behaviour

of cables and electrical lines and thus

contribute to the safety of humans.

In the case of fire, less smoke and toxic gases

are produced. This means better visibility and

improved chances to escape from the fire as

well as a reduced danger for rescue workers.

The application of the Construction Products

Regulation (CPR) must be implemented by

1st July 2017. This regulation is binding for

all member states since it has entered into

force on 1st July 2013, and cables, which are

permanently installed in the building and for

which harmonised European standards on the

basis of the Construction Products Regulation

(CPR) also applies, are now also included in

this regulation.

Classification of cables as a construction

product

According to the definition of the European

Commission and the European Court of Justice,

a cable is only considered as a construction

product within the meaning of the Construction

Products Regulation, if it cannot be

removed from the building without any

associated construction work. This is especially

the case if the cables are installed flush-mounted

or in permanently installed cable ducts.

Implementation deadline for EN 50575

EN 50575 has entered into force on 1st July

2016. However, its actual implementation is

subject to an implementation period until 30th

June 2017. Hence, the date of the first delivery

of XBK-KABEL to the respective European

customers is decisive for the fulfilment of the

applicable statutory requirements.

Therefore, if a product is placed on the market

before 1st July 2017 without complying with

the requirements of the Construction Products

Regulation (CPR) and is subsequently

resold within the EU after this date, the reseller

behaves absolutely lawfully: Since the cable

was already brought onto the market in

compliance with the standards and guidelines,

the subsequent distributors in the distribution

chain can also resell the cable after 01st July

2017 without the obligatory data and documentation

of the Construction Products Regulation

(CPR). Products that have been introduced

on the market for the first time by 30th June

2017 do therefore not require documentation

in accordance with the Construction Products

Regulation (CPR) and EN 50575.

Euroclasses of the Construction Products

Regulation (CPR)

On the basis of the Commission’s delegated

regulation (EU) 2016/364 of 1st July 2015 on

the classification of the fire behaviour of

construction products, a single and unique

criterion for the classification within the EU was

created. In order to be able to determine the

reaction to fire, different classes with the criteria

for the classification were defined,

depending on the heat release in the case of

fire. In addition, it is also intended that the

manufacturer can use the „no performance

determined“ option (Euroclass Fca), if no

conditions are specified for reaction to fire.
