305/2011/EU Construction Products Regulation

This regulation enacted to ensure the free movement of construction products within the European Union and to ensure the suitability of construction products for human health and the environment. Under this regulation, the CE certification process requires manufacturers to demonstrate that their construction products meet the specified requirements in the regulation and are suitable for human health and the environment.

Why Should You Obtain CE Certification for Construction and Building Materials?

CE certification for construction and building materials is used to facilitate the free movement of construction products within the European Union (EU). The CE certificate indicates compliance with specific standards and regulations. Here are the reasons for obtaining this certification:

Legal Requirement

It is a legal requirement that construction materials sold or used in EU countries must have CE certification. Products without the CE mark cannot be sold or used.

Reliability and Quality

CE certification demonstrates compliance with specific EU regulations and standards, ensuring the reliability and quality of the product.

Market Access

CE certification streamlines access to the EU market. Products with the CE mark can circulate freely within EU countries and engage in trade.


CE-certified construction materials enhance safety. Products meeting specific standards can be used more safely in construction projects.

Competitive Advantage

Companies with CE certification have an advantage in proving the quality of their products, enhancing their competitive edge.

Declaration of Conformity

CE certification requires manufacturers or importers to make a declaration of conformity with EU regulations, enabling product tracking and monitoring.

Public Health and Environment

CE certification ensures control over the impact of construction materials on public health and the environment, promoting sustainability and public well-being.

As Sertifike, we produce effective solutions for manufacturers in all the steps to be followed in CE marking and listed below.

Determination of Standards and Conformity Assessment Method

The first step for manufacturers wishing to affix CE marking to their products is to determine the standards and classes related to their products. In this way, the conformity assessment method to which the product is subject and the steps to be followed in the CE certification process are decided. If you do not know the standard of your products, you can get more detailed information by contacting a Sertifike expert immediately.

Product Testing

Product tests must be conducted in accordance with the standards to be used for CE marking. Type tests can be conducted in the manufacturer’s laboratory in some cases and in accredited laboratories in others. Sertifike ensures the coordination of product testing for all types of construction materials through our extensive network of subcontractors.

Factory Production Control (FPC) System

Manufacturers are responsible for preparing and implementing relevant quality system procedures and product controls for the production process.

Inspection and Certification

Certificates issued only by Notified Bodies grant manufacturers the permission to use the CE mark. Notified Bodies must be designated by relevant accreditation bodies, ministries, and the European Commission.

Declaration of Performance

Once the document declaring the performance characteristics of the product, as described in the regulation, is prepared, the process is completed. Sertifike is capable of preparing and presenting the Declaration of Performance quickly.

CE Marking

Manufacturers have the right to affix the CE mark to their construction products.
