From the 1st of July the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), will require that all construction products to carry a CE Mark.
However, road markings are not to be included within this regulation as these products do not have a harmonised European Norm (hEN). Conditions of the CPR require that manufacturers are compelled to attach a CE Mark only to products where a hEN exists.
In a statement issued to the Road Safety Markings Association the DfT confirmed that:
“For permanent works, the department maintains that road marking materials are not included within the definition of ‘Construction Product’ provided by the Construction Product Regulations. Our opinion is that non CE Marked products can continue to be specified after 1 July 2013 when these regulations come into force.”
