The mutual recognition principle ensures market access for goods, including construction products, that are not or only partly subject to EU harmonisation legislation. This means that if a product is legally marketed in one EU Member State, it is ensured market access in another Member State. However, there may be exceptions where public safety, health or the environment are concerned.
Furthermore, attention is drawn to the fact that a construction product must be suitable for what it is marketed for, and there must be no misleading about the legal use of the construction product in the construction or about the product's properties. In Denmark, it is required that the instructions for use and safety information for construction products must be in Danish, while the declaration of performance can be in Danish or English.
