New EADs published

A list of new EADs is published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Since today, Technical Assessment Bodies can use methods and criteria provided in the following EADs for assessing performance of construction products which are covered by those EADs:

EAD Number: 040427-00-0404
Title: Kits for external thermal insulation composite system (ETICS) with mortar as thermal insulation product and renderings or discontinuous claddings as exterior skin

EAD Number: 060012-00-0802
Title: Kit consisting of chimney flue liner, made of glass fibres, mineral and organic substances, and ancillaries

EAD Number: 090119-00-0404
Title: Kits for external wall claddings of mineral boards with renderings applied in-situ

EAD Number: 090120-00-0404
Title: Kits for non-load bearing mineral board external wall systems

EAD Number: 130031-00-0304
Title: Metal web beams and columns

EAD Number: 130082-00-0603
Title: Façade fixing system – plastic bracket for fixing timber or wood based elements to the substructure

 EAD Number: 260014-00-0301
Title: Calcined layer silicate based type II addition

The above EADs satisfy the demands to be met in relation to the basic requirements for construction works, and thus contribute to the European safety level.

Full text of the EADs are published on our website for free download.

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!

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.

Note: This is the first time that the publication of EADs is announced via a Commission Implementing Decision in the part L (Legislation) of the Official Journal. Until 2018 a consolidated list of all EADs were communicated by the European Commission via the Official Journal in the series C (information and series).
