European Technical Assessment (ETA)

According to Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 of The European Parliament and of The Council of 9 March 2011, laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing Council Directive 89/106/EEC, starting from 1 July 2013 European Technical Assessment (ETA) can be issued for construction products that are not covered or not fully covered by European harmonised standards.

 

European Technical Assessment (ETA) is a reference document for the drawing up of a declaration of performance of a construction product by a manufacturer and for its CE marking.

 

According to the decisions of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Development No. 1/JOT/WB/14 of 14 January 2014 and No. 4/JOT/WB/14 of 14 January 2015  as well as the decision of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Construction No. 2 / JOT / WB / 16 of 18 August 2016, Institute of Ceramics and Building Materials is authorized to issue European Technical Assessments (ETAs) for construction products in the following product areas:

ICiMB TAB Decision No. 4/JOT/WB/14

ICiMB TAB Decision No. 2/JOT/WB/16

 

Institute of Ceramics and Building Materials has been approved and introduced to the NANDO Database as a Technical Assessment Body (TAB) by European Commission on 22 May 2014.

 

Applying for a European Technical Assessment

 

A manufacturer or his authorised representative may request for a European Technical Assessment (ETA application form). An application shall be submitted to Technical Assessment Department.

With the application the following information shall be given:

  • Type and description of the construction product, its intended use and the essential characteristics/performances to be declared
  • Manufacturing plants where the construction product is produced
  • If available, if the construction product is or is not fully covered by a harmonised standard
  • If an application has been introduced to another Technical Assessment Body before.

After receiving the application Technical Assessment Department checks if the product is not or is not fully covered by a harmonised standard or any other harmonised technical specification <European Assessment Document or European Technical Approval Guidelines (ETAG) used as European Assessment Document>. If the product is covered by a harmonised standard the European Technical Assessment cannot be issued. In cases where no harmonised technical specification exists, Technical Assessment Department will initiate the development of a European Assessment Document within European Organisation for Technical Assessment EOTA (Definitions).

 

 

Development of a European Assessment Document

 

Technical Assessment Department based on the agreement with the manufacturer will define the work program. Work program is taking into account the essential characteristics relevant for the intended use. The subject of the European Technical Assessment request and the work program will be discussed within EOTA. On the basis of the work program, Technical Assessment Department will draft a European Assessment Document. Technical Assessment Bodies designated for the relevant product area(s) and/or relevant working groups can participate in the development process of a European Assessment Document. The manufacturer is fully involved into the development process of the European Assessment Document. The draft European Assessment Document will be discussed within EOTA.

 

EOTA informs the European Commission about the work program. From that moment on, the development process of a European Assessment Document in general should not exceed six months. The final draft of European Assessment Document is approved by the EOTA Technical Board and submitted to the European Commission.

 

A list of references of the European Assessment Documents is published in the Official Journal of the European Union. EOTA ensures that European Assessment Documents are kept publicly available.

 

Consultation periods are defined in the Regulation (EU) 305/2011 and further determined in EOTA Internal Regulations:

  • Consultation on the request for European Technical Assessment requiring the development of European Assessment Document and/or initial work program: 1 month
  • Consultation on the final work program, if needed: 2 weeks
  • Consultation on a 1st draft European Assessment Document (EOTA, European Commission): 1 month
  • Consultation on final draft European Assessment Document (manufacturer): 15 working days
  • Consultation on adopted draft European Assessment Document (European Commission): 15 working days
  • Adoption of European Assessment Document: 2 weeks
  • Translation of European Assessment Document titles in all official EU languages: 1 month
  • Publication of European Assessment Document references in the Official Journal of the European Union: 6 - 8 weeks.

 

If European Assessment Document exists, Technical Assessment Department may draft a European Technical Assessment. In order to ensure consistency of the European Technical Assessments, the drafted document is circulated amongst designated Technical Assessment Bodies for consultation. The duration of consultation is 1 month.
