Institute of Theatre Consultants invite Canford to deliver CPR presentation
The Institute of Theatre Consultants have invited Canford to their June 2017 members meeting aboard the HQS Wellington in Central London. The meeting has been scheduled ahead of the introduction of the new Construction Products Regulation (CPR) legislation, which becomes effective from 01 July 2017.
Working in partnership with Neil Mabbott, a leading member of the CPR standards committee and Technical Director of Draka Comteq Ltd MMS (part of the Prysmian Group), Canford have created an informative presentation to share essential information regarding the new CPR regulations, and how they will affect cable installations.
Canford CEO, Iain Elliott will deliver the CPR presentation which was first unveiled at ABTT 2017 to a collection of consultants, system designers and installation contacts with a desire to ensure their projects remain compliant with the law.
The CPR determines mandatory performance characteristics of all installed cable.
From July, installed cabling must meet essential “Reaction to Fire” conditions as set out by the CPR. No cable can move on the market without approval to the CPR. This includes imported product from outside of the European Union. Owners of a brand will automatically become the “Manufacturer” as far as CPR legislation is concerned, and are therefore required to comply with all parts of the regulation – “Nothing can be left to a 3rd party”.
CPR also introduces an obligatory Declaration of Performance and the CE marking of cables.
Canford’s existing LFH (Low Fire Hazard) cables are compliant with the CPR Euroclass E, and new designs are in preparation for major projects where performance is required to CPR Euroclass C.
