Important knowledge for early birds - CPR-Fire protection for cables

Brugg Cables Academy courses held in German language.

Fire performance of cable systems is now relevant with the introduction of the new CPR (Construction Products Regulation no. 305/2011). This ordinance, incorporated by Switzerland into its Building Products Act, has been in force since October 2014. From 1 July 2017 at the latest, building products (in accordance with the harmonised technical standard) may no longer be marketed without a statement of performance. After completing the course, participants will be familiar with the requirements of both fire protection and electrical fittings.


An introduction to the Directives and standards, fire protection, materials technology, cable structure and fire test specifications. Demonstration in the fire test chamber. Buffet lunch to follow.
