Embedding CPR into long term practice

Requirements for cables under the CPR are new since 2017. Electrical specifiers and installers need to follow the requirements for the country in which they work. Over time, CPR requirements will become ever more embedded into national regulations, design codes, product and installation standards, and into the education and training of professionals in the electrical sector.

Although there is a common system applied by cable manufacturers and Notified Bodies to the classification of cables under the CPR, each country has its own local approach to laws, regulations, standards and guidance for CPR and cables as they are used in buildings and related applications. Electrical specifiers and installers need to follow local requirements. Information for Ireland can be found below.

In Ireland the official market surveillance authorities for construction products are building control authorities, who can take enforcement action.
