7th ECTP Conference PDS PPT

  1. 1. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016 Introduction
  2. 2. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016 European Organisation for Technical Assessment
  3. 3. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016  Within the framework of the implementation of the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011  co-ordinate the Technical Assessment Bodies  develop and adopt European Assessment Documents (EADs)  support members in preparing and issuing European Technical Assessments (ETAs)  promote the exchange of best practices to increase efficiency and provide a better service to industry  make adopted EADs and references to ETAs publicly available  inform the European Commission and the Standing Committee for Construction of any questions related to the preparation of EADs and suggest improvements  ensure cooperation and consultation with other stakeholders EOTA Tasks
  4. 4. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016 Why is the ETA so important?  ETA provides an alternative route to CE marking when there is no harmonised European standard (hEN). This is especially important for: innovative construction products, specialist or ‘niche‘ products for which the development of a harmonised standard is not an option, products where CEN procedures are hindered or impaired by conflicts of interest.
  5. 5. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016 Internal market access via ETA route to CE marking Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 (of 9 March 2011) EAD (European AssessmentDocument) Declaration of performance AVCP tasks CE marking Test report Calcul. report Simul. report Experience Claimsof manufacturer Instructions and safety information (article 11.6) ET-Assessment 9 monthsmaximum
  6. 6. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016 Advantages of an ETA  ETA is the only tailor-made assessment procedure available for construction products that offers access to the entire internal market.  Objective, independent assessment ensures the trust of customers.  Harmonised declaration of product performance ensures transparency and fair competition.  AVCP systems comparable to the ones under harmonised standards guarantee constancy of performance.  Assessment procedure often leads to product optimisation.  Improved company image through CE marking, especially for small manufacturers with less known brands.
  7. 7. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016 According to a study commissioned by the European Commission  The benefits of requesting an ETA far outweigh its costs.  Manufacturers, who have obtained an ETA, would do so again!  The ETA procedure is also accessible to small and medium enterprises (SMEs).  CE marking helps boost product sales.
  8. 8. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016  More than 140 EADs adopted as basis for the issuing of ETAs  To date October 2016 some 2271 ETAs issued since end of June 2013, tendency strongly increasing  By November 2016 71 EADs are cited in OJEU (2016-10-14), some of them already in an amended version 258 1006 1251 1522 2013 2014 2015 2016 NumberofETA Development of ETA requests since July 2013, calibrated to entire years Some figures
  9. 9. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016 EOTA’s priorities with regard to ETAs Promoting the use of ETAs as a voluntary, independent and harmonised product assessment among manufacturers Further improving the ETA procedure (processing times have already been cut considerably!) Promoting the use of ETA assessed construction products by providing additional technical specifications in the form of Technical Reports (TRs).

  13. 13. ECTP Conference Brussels, November 17-18, 2016  ETAs are a fast route to CE marking.  In comparison to the CEN route, the EOTA route provides tailor-made assessments for manufacturers.  With ETAs, manufacturers can provide a documented technical assessment of the construction product in addition to the declaration of performance (DoP) and CE marking.  Benefits outweigh the costs (also for SMEs).  Strengthening of the role of Technical Reports is envisaged in order to have a link between ETAs and the end use conditions in construction works.  Future EADs and ETAs should also cover product characteristics related to BWR 7. For this purpose EOTA has established a Project Team (PT 12). Conclusion and outlook
