CommScope's COVID-19 Customer & Partner Hub Visit
CPR is the European Union classification and labeling standard for permanently-installed IT, video and cables, classifying their fire performance, application, acidity rating, droplets rating and smoke rating. CPR also designates minimum performance levels for these standards in different installations and location types.
For all cables delivered to market on or after July 1, 2017, manufacturers are to include a Certificate of Performance that declares performance for each category. This information will also appear on cable jacketing, labels and boxes.
Because safety is always our top concern, CommScope supported this move toward a consistent, unified standard for cabling and other construction materials.
CPR includes many interrelated standards, both mandatory and optional, and can be complex to understand. To help you know how CPR will affect your network, CommScope is glad to provide additional resources that explain CPR in greater detail.
