Construction Products Regulation (CPR)
for communications and data cables


The Construction Products Regulation serves to establish harmonised rules and standards for placing construction products on the market. Every product, no matter whether power, control or communications cables, that is permanently installed in a building comes under this Regulation. The aim of the Construction Products Regulation is to create a Europe-wide, harmonised standard in buildings in order to keep the levels of flame propagation, heat development, smoke development and acid formation in the event of a fire as low as possible.

Recommendations of the »ZVEI« based on the MBO

For energy, control and communication cables in buildings, groupings according to various criteria (heat release and flame propagation, etc.) are prescribed. Based on this classification, the ZVEI has issued recommendations for the cables and fire classes to be used. The following rule of thumb applies: the larger the building, the higher the safety requirement.
