FS Cables are importers and distributors of products that qualify as articles in the REACH regulations; we are therefore not required to register these products.
As the products we supply under normal conditions are not intended to release substances we are not required to submit a registration for the chemical substances contained in these articles.
We will continue to monitor our supply chain to ensure that all products manufactured and supplied by FS Cables are fully compliant to the REACH regulations.

The Construction Products Regulation (CPR) covers the fire performance and other aspects of various products used in construction.
Suppliers (manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors) will have to declare the fire performance of a cable designed for use in buildings.
FS Cables have had hundreds of products independently tested for compliance to CPR. You can view all of them on our dedicated CPR page, along with useful videos, guides and information on the regulation.
