Construction Product Regulations

The construction product regulations (CPR) are created to make sure that construction products who find there way to the market are proper functioning and express the performance one should expect of it. As a solid fuel manufacturer your product needs to meet the harmonized technical specifications of the CPR if you want to enter the European market. 

Automatic boilers and the Machinery Directive

Another important standard you have to taken into account is the Machinery Directive. It focusses at the protection of workers and consumers who will use your machinery. In the Directive one can find all health and safety requirements your appliance needs to meet. This is especially important for manufacturers of automatic boilers.
