BauPVO - Declaration of Performance (DoP)
The new Construction Product Ordinance (BauPVO) takes effect on 1 July 2013. The Declaration of Performance as per article 6 of BauPVO substitutes the EC Declaration of Conformity as per BPR.
The BauPVO lays down conditions for placing or making available on the market of construction products by establishing rules how to express the performance of construction products in relation to their essential characteristics and on the use of CE marking.
Hereafter, as from 01 July 2013, manufacturers who place construction products with CE marking on the market have to provide actively a so-called Declaration of Performance (LE or DoP) for each of their products, i.e. as paper copy or by electronic means, to the distributor, who has to make it available to the user.
