TruHD – CPR Compliant

What is CPR?
The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) has been around for many years. CPR covers the fire performance and other aspects of various products used in construction.
The idea is that people involved in the design and construction of buildings will be able to make more informed decisions about the potential spread of fire of the products they choose. Cables are the latest products to be regulated this way.
