NOTE: for the topics of Ü mark/national technical approvals please pay attention to the statements by the DIBt and its draft on requirement on buildings in the right side bar!

The European Construction Products Regulation (CPR) describes the fundamental requirements on hygiene, health and environment protection.

Note: The Ü mark of conformity on the basis of the abZ is compulsory for those products for interior use. That means: who uses products without Ü mark which are nevertheless sold in DIY stores, for example, defies the Building Regulations of the Land.
