Abstract Directive 89/106/EEC (see CIS 93-3) on construction materials whose objective is the free exchange of these materials with the European Community, is reviewed. This Directive, with 24 articles in ten chapters and four annexes, has a general character estabishing the essential safety requirements for construction materials. Four out of the six essential requirements established are directly related to safety and health aspects: fire safety; hygiene and health; safe use; noise protection. The essential requirements of general character are made more specific in the interpretative documents elaborated by the Technical Committees (one for each essential requirement). Annex I lists the products and installations covered by the fifth-edition draft of the essential requirement on fire safety.
