This European Standard defines the principles for the design of works carried out using fibrous (gypsum) plaster products as defined in EN 13815.
Fibrous (gypsum) plaster casts from the three categories of production below (see Clause 4 of
EN 13815:2006) should be involved:
a) ”cpp” allowing regulatory marking CE;
b) “cppv” allowing regulatory marking CE;
c) “ipp” either when CE marking is required;
or without CE marking (see Annex D – Note 2 of EN 13815:2006).
This European Standard applies to both new constructions and to the refurbishment, restructuring or conversion of existing buildings.
The common fields of application of fibrous plaster are as set out in Table 1 below.
Table 1 — Common fields of application of fibrous plaster
Fields of application Examples
Architectural effects  decorating: cornices, pilasters, columns (see exception vii below);
 on the ceiling: flat or shaped ceilings (included suspended ceilings), coffered ceilings, vaults, domes;
 in a vertical position : flat or shaped surfaces (partitions, linings);
 encasements, casings;
 embellishments for direct or concealed lighting;
 structures to improve acoustical performance (insulation, absorption, diffusion).
Technical functions  shafts and ducts for ventilation, air conditioning, smoke extraction;
 ceiling voids and chambers for pressurization;
 structures to enhance fire safety.
NOTE 1 This classification is not exclusive, as the same fibrous plaster work can have several functions.
NOTE 2 Table 1 does not mention the use of fibrous plaster externally; as it can only be used under certain conditions (see

Fibrous plastering work should be capable of having the usual finishes applied directly to them (e.g. paint, wallpaper) subject to the normal preparatory work applicable for the type of finish.
