As a result of the European Construction Products Regulation, the fencing industry is obliged from 1 July 2013 to provide a declaration of performance with CE-marked sliding gates, swing gates and speed gates. This statement is called Declaration of Performance (DoP). The DoP provides information about the main performance of the product and its intended use.
The declaration of performance constitutes proof that the product satisfies the performance required for its specific application. The declaration of performance (Declaration of Performance, ‘DoP’) is supplied digitally or in paper form with the CE mark and can be found below. The manufacturer or importer records the performance of the construction product and the associated intended application (s) in the DoP. The latter is of great importance for producer liability.
