The CPD 89/106/EEC is one of the New Approach Directives. This means its aim is to allow the free movement of construction products across Europe. The CPD is a product-specific set of standard so rather than a generic risk assessment based standard applying to all machinery, each product has its own set of specific standards. Out of the 21 New Approach Directives that call for CE marking, 5 apply to roller shutters. To comply with a New Approach Directive you must satisfy the “essential requirements” of the directive. Third party testing, standards and risk assessments are methods by which compliance is achieved.
