Declaration of Performance (DoP)
On 1st July 2013 the Construction Product Regulations (CPR) replaced the Construction Products Directive (CPD) and made CE Marking mandatory.
As a major European insulation manufacturer all URSA glass wool products have carried the CE Mark since its introduction in 2003. The new Regulations require that all products have a Declaration of Performance (DoP) certificate which contains key information about the product’s characteristics and physical properties.
Compliance with harmonised European Standard BS EN 13162 and CE Marking is deemed to show that URSA glass wool products are fit for purpose and fit for use under the Building Regulations (see Approved Document 7 and the Technical Handbooks in Scotland).
The DoP Certificate number for every URSA glass wool product is available either from the pack label or from the URSA Technical Department. The certificate may be viewed or downloaded via our dedicated website.
As the UK is no longer a member of the EU a new accreditation system will become mandatory from 1st January 2023. The CE Mark will be replaced with the UKCA Mark. We are currently duplicating all of our CE Mark certificates across to the UKCA Marking system so that both options are covered. As soon as the new UKCA Mark certificates are complete they will be available to download from the ‘Documents’ section of our website or via the URSA dedicated DoP website. Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will continue to accept CE Marking.
