EUROPEAN TECHNICAL ASSESSMENTS

 

The European Technical Assessment (ETA) is a document providing information on the assessment of the performance of a construction product, in relation to its essential characteristics. This definition is provided in the new Construction Products Regulation (EU/305/2011) entered into force on 1st of July 2013 in all European Members States and in the European Economic Area.

 

The ETA creates confidence in the performance of the essential characteristics of a construction product for its intended use. The ETA contributes to the free movement of construction products and thus to the Single European Market.
