In Report no. 20 from the ITeC EOTA Office, the publication of the second Execution Decision on European Assessment Documents (EAD) in the Official Journal of the European Union is highlighted. This Decision includes six EAD, three of which correspond to the conversion of three ETA Guidelines. These EAD substitute the related ETA Guidelines.
The converted ETA Guidelines are: ETA Guideline 003, on kits for non-bearing internal partitions; ETA Guideline 006, on waterproofing systems with flexible sheets mechanically fixed; and ETA Guideline 010, on kits for plastic self-supporting translucent roofs.
From the publication date on, the new European Technical Assessments-ETA for these products will be issued in accordance with the corresponding EADs, to enable their CE marking.
The remaining three EAD have been prepared based on manufacturers’ requests. They can be consulted in Report no. 20, together with the EAD published in the first Execution Decision.
The Reports of ITeC EOTA Office regularly compile information – news with comments – and relevant documents issued at European level, based on EOTA meetings and documents circulated through this organisation.
EOTA is the European Organisation for Technical Assessment dealing with products either not covered by any harmonised standard or deviating from an existing harmonised standard. As a member of EOTA, ITeC participates actively at all levels of this European Organisation.
