Technical Working Groups

 

Revision of ETAGs

Under the Construction Products Directive (89/106/EEC) EOTA had developed European Technical Approvals Guidelines (ETAGs).  As technology and experience further develops and innovation is a steady fact in manufacturing processes, the ETAGs published until June 2013 under CPD will be revised and developed in European Assessment Documents in accordance to the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 (CPR).

This has been agreed between the European Commission and EOTA in April 2014. The work is partly co-funded and audited by the European Commission. With regard to technical questions an EC consultant supports the European Commission. 

Indicative time schedule for all projects: see website of the European Commission

Details for the work:

  1. The revision will be executed in working groups convened by determined Technical Assessment Bodies or cooperating institutes ("newETAG WG");
  2. Participation in the working group is open to all stakeholders concerned. It is expected that experts are nominated by an EU association and present a common position;
  3. The EU Commission and the EC Consultant are involved in the entire development project.
  4. The work programme is subject to strict project planning following the rules agreed with the European Commission.
  5. Regular reporting in the EOTA Technical Board and through appropriate communication tools is ensured. All documents, comments and positions are communicated in a transparent way within the working group.
  6. A 1st draft EAD is subject to a 1-month consultation round to the working group and to the European Commission; for all subsequent consultations a 2-weeks circulation period is applicable.  
  7. Adoption and publication of the converted ETAG will follow the principles of Annex II of the Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 accordingly, whereas the adoption of the EADs will take place in the working group of designated TABs on EOTA Technical Board level. The convenor informs the working group about the adoption result. 
  8. Results will be presented in the Technical Stakeholder Advisory Group (TSAG) to a bigger audience.

other Working Groups

If necessary due to further development of the state of art or to the need to find a common understandig in the sector, EOTA publishes calls for experts aiming at discussing the development of further publications by EOTA, in particular Technical Reports or any other guidance supporting the EOTA work. The development procedure follows a project plan defined by the WG. Support by EU associations is asked to be in kind. 
 

Participation

EU associations should consider to nominate experts with high technical competence in the relevant product area and English literacy.  Objectivity and a sound technical judgement is expected from the expert throughout the whole revision process. EOTA does not provide for direct or indirect financial compensation of such industry/SME support in the work. EOTA will not seek for respective funding on EU level, but may support respective policy initiatives. All candidatures are subject to approval of EOTA Technical Board.

Applications by EU associations should be addressed within the deadline of the call for experts to EOTA Secretariat in Brussels (info(at)eota.eu) and containing the following information and documents:

  • Determination of the relevant WG the EU association is interested in;
  • Information on the scope of activity of the EU association and representativeness (preferably following EU transparency rules for consultative entities) and justification of the interest;
  • Information on the employer of the expert and the experts’ expertise (in brief);
  • for download: ​Letter of commitment and Annex.
