New EADs published

Today, seventeen new references to EADs (European Assessment Documents) were cited in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

The new reference list includes nine listings which convert European Technical Approval Guidelines (ETAGs) into EADs, namely transforming ETAG 001 part 5, 013, 018 (all parts), 026 part (1, 2 and 3), and ETAG 029. The phased conversion of ETAGs developed under the Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC) into EADs under the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011 was agreed between European Commission and EOTA in 2014.

For the first time, the listings also refer to new assessment methods for the emission of dangerous substances which were recently developed and published by CEN. In the absence of a harmonised classification system for dangerous substances in construction products, EOTA and the European Commission have agreed on an approach to integrate these methods into EADs.

The ETA route to CE marking is open to all manufacturers of construction products whose products are not fully covered by a harmonised standard. Feel free to contact one of our competent Technical Assessment Bodies (TAB) to have your product assessed!

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

Bodies wishing to provide third party tasks in the assessment and verification of the constancy of the performance (AVCP) of construction products are invited to apply for notification with their responsible notifying authority.

List of new EADs published today for the first time in OJEU 2017/C 435/07

Note: For EAD 350402-… - Reactive coatings for fire protection of steel elements, replacing ETAG 018 part 2 and incorporating ETAG 018 part 1, the correct complete EAD number is 350402-00-1106 (not …-1101). The typo will be corrected in the next comprehensive list of EADs which is going to be communicated in the OJEU in January 2018.
