Destination Europe - How to bring your non-standard construction product to the European market place as a small or medium-sized manufacturer

back to latest news »
02/10/2017

The European construction market has a volume of approx. 13 trillion EUR – a huge opportunity for construction product manufacturers. However, many small and medium enterprises (SMEs) with innovative or non-standard products shy away from the administrative and technical barriers they fear to encounter when entering the European market. The good news is that it is actually quite simple to obtain a Europe-wide 'passport' for non-standard construction products.

The European Technical Assessment (ETA) allows manufacturers to market their non-standard products all across Europe with the CE marking. Learn more about this European assessment option and share your experiences and success stories with other SMEs.
