Cleveland Cable Company confirms that all our cables manufactured after the 1st July 2017 have been assessed in line with CPR regulations where applicable, and come with all supporting documentation.
From 1st July 17 all non-fire performance cables introduced into the EU market which are to be a permanent fixture in a building or construction must comply with CPR and be rated and certified accordingly. The legislation applies across all construction products across Europe and aims to provide harmonised standards to all new building projects.
The Cables are assessed against:
Products are classified from A to F in accordance to their flame propagation properties, with additional classifications for their reaction to smoke, flaming droplets and acidity.

Compliance to CPR is verified by the CE Marking on the product or the packaging. Cleveland Cable Company cut tickets will show the same information as the drum, but with additional details. The Manufacturer Declaration of performance certificate is kept on record at Cleveland Cable and is available on request.
Suppliers and end users have a responsibility to check whether CE labelling with CPR classification is available on the packaging for all applicable cables manufactured after 1st July 2017.
