Following the release of Christian Doleschal’s draft report on the Construction Products Regulation, and considering amendments being tabled until mid-December, the European Environmental Bureau submit its views.

The EEB is particularly concerned about the following directions taken in the report to be considered in the European Parliament:

  • A greater push towards standardisation, at the expense of transparency and policy debate;
  • A clear choice to protect industry’s interests with too little to no consideration for consumers or the environment;
  • A weakening of enforcement and market surveillance provisions, as well as the regime of green public procurement.
