More than 100 EADs published

back to latest news »

Since 2015 EOTA is publishing those EADs which are cited in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). Until now 113 EADs are cited.

Amongst them 61 documents result from an exchange of best assessment practices for construction products under the former Construction Products Directive which were further developed. 20 EADs concern products not covered by technical specifications (hTS) harmonized in the European Union before. 17 EADs already cover recent technical developments.

Whereas in 2015 only 19 EADs were published, activity in 2016 resulted in the publication of 65 EADs, and already 29 EADs in the first quarter of this year.

The EADs are published by us on our website for free download: go to “Publications” -> “EAD”

Note: the publication OJEU 2017/C 118/04 contains two printing mistakes: (1) Products described in EAD 040089-00 are intended for façades (EOTA Product area 0404), not for roofs (EOTA product area 0401); (2) EAD 200050-00-0102 does not supersede 200039-00-0102. The corrections will be published in one of the next issues of the OJEU.

Our TABs are requested to use the latest editions of EADs for assessments of construction products. The verification of the constancy of the declared performance of a construction product is validated on the basis of the ETA by so called Notified Bodies (NBs).

Interested manufacturers are invited to assess their innovations via the ETA route with our Technical Assessment Bodies (TABs).

According to the actual information of TABs 654 ETAs were issued in 2014, 965 in 2015, 1215 ETAs in 2016.
