New EADs published

back to latest news »

Today 12 new EADs (European Assessment Documents) were cited in the Official Journal of the European Union. These new EADs provide methods and criteria for assessing the performance of construction products in the following product areas:

02. Doors, Windows, Shutters, Gates and Related Building Hardware

04. Thermal Insulation Products; Composite Insulating Kits/Systems

09. Curtain Walling/Cladding/Structural Sealant Glazing

13. Structural Timber Products/Elements and Ancillaries

15. Cement, Building Limes and Other Hydraulic Binders

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

Manufacturers interested are invited to assess their construction products via the ETA route with our Technical Assessment Bodies (TABs).

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