EOTA Technical Reports (TR) handle details of construction products in some aspects and express the common understanding of existing knowledge and experience about such products of the Technical Assessment Bodies (TABs) at a particular point in time. They are adopted in EOTA Technical Board.
EOTA TRs initially were developed as supporting reference documents to European Technical Approval Guidelines (ETAGs). They could also be applied in cases where the assessment of the construction products was adopted by the Approval Bodies acting jointly within EOTA (Art. 9 (2) of the Directive (EEC) 89/106 (CPD), or to an EOTA Comprehension Document or an European Technical Approval (ETA), as far as reference was made therein. They are also developed under Regulation (EU) 305/2011 (CPR).
Where engineering knowledge and technical experience is developing, especially through assessment work and research activities, such reports could be amended and updated. They support the assessment work of TABs and the EAD development in EOTA.
