Low Fire Hazard Cables under the CPR

The European Cable Industry has developed a family of Low Fire Hazard Cables that couple low flame spread and heat release with very low emission of smoke and dangerous gases. These cables help to provide more time to escape and a less hazardous environment for rescue teams.


In Europe all cables that are permanently incorporated (so called fixed installations) into a building - whether residential, commercial or industrial - and into other civil works such as tunnels are covered by the Construction Products Regulation (CPR). This includes power cables of any rated voltage, as well as communication cables with metal and glass (optical fibre) conductors.
