The European Organisation for Technical Assessment (EOTA) is a Europe-wide association of Technical Assessment Bodies for construction products established under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR).
EOTA is a non-profit organisation based in Brussels (Belgium). We provide the framework for the European Technical Assessment (ETA) of construction products to ensure consistent product performance information throughout Europe. The EOTA network is the only platform which allows European manufacturers of innovative or non-standard construction products to bring their products to the European market with CE marking.
The basis of the approach is the European Assessment Documents (EADs) developed in EOTA.
- Promote trust and transparency in the European construction product market
- Create consistent technical specifications for the European construction industry while facilitating product innovation and improvement
- Expertise: EOTA provides knowledge and sound technical judgement to construction industry stakeholders
- Co-operation: EOTA enhances collaboration and sharing of best practises among technical partners
- Impartiality: Objectivity is at the core of EOTA’s activities
- Confidentiality: EOTA manages the information you provide with the greatest care
