Radio Frequency Systems (RFS) Cable Products Comply with EU’s New Construction Products Regulation (CPR)

Hanover (Germany), November 17, 2016 – Radio Frequency Systems (RFS), a global wireless and broadcast infrastructure specialist, will be ready to supply cable products that are certified compliant with the EU’s new Construction Products Regulation (CPR) when declaration of performance becomes mandatory on July 1, 2017.

The CPR lays down harmonized rules for the marketing of construction products in the EU. It provides a common technical language to assess the performance of construction products, ensuring that reliable information is available for comparing performance of products from different manufacturers in different countries. This will also make it easier for users to know the construction products, including cable, meet stringent fire standards that help protect lives and infrastructure across the EU and EEA member countries. To show compliance with these standards, products affected must be CE marked, backed by manufacturer certification.

RFS manufactures cable that is used to provide wireless communication coverage in confined areas, such as tunnels and buildings, all over the world. The cables are subject to the CPR regulation. “As a preeminent world leader in cable and telecommunications infrastructure, RFS has closely followed development of the new regulation and taken steps to make sure that our products are compliant,” said Andreas Bergmeister, Product Manager Indoor Solutions, Cables Business Unit, RFS.
The Construction Products Regulation is currently being transferred and incorporated into national standards for each EU member country. This process will be completed, and products must be certified, by the July 1, 2017 deadline.
