CE Marking

From 1st July 2013 the Construction Products Regulations 2011 (CPR) include a requirement that all products manufactured to a harmonised European Standard carry a CE mark and an accompanying Declaration of Performance (DOP).

Ilam Stone Ltd products comply with the standards set out to the more stringent specifications of BS1217:2008 but this is not yet a harmonised European Standard.

Products that do meet the harmonised European Standard at the moment are for BS EN 771-5:2011 Manufactured Stone Masonry Units (i.e. those with maximum dimension less that 650mm and that do not contain fixings or reinforcement) and will carry a CE mark and associated DoP.

The CE Mark provides proof of “fitness for purpose”and by affixing the CE mark Ilam Stone show that the construction product will enable the finished construction works to comply with the Construction Products Regulation requirements (i.e. The Basic Works Requirements) of:

  • Mechanical resistance and stability
  • Safety in case of fire
  • Hygiene, health and environment
  • Safety & accessibility in use
  • Protection against noise
  • Energy economy and heat retention
  • Sustainable use of natural resources

Definition and objectives

The Declaration of Performance is the key concept in the Construction Products Regulation.
