European Organisation for Technical Approvals
European Organisation for Technical Assessment (EOTA) (German: Europäische Organisation für Technische Bewertung, French: Organisation européenne pour l'évaluation technique) is an international non-profit association. It was established in 1990 in Belgium under the provisions of the EC Council Directive of 21 December 1988, relating to construction products (Construction Products Directive 89/106/EEc). As from 11 June 2013, EOTA reregistered as the organisation for technical assessment according to Article 31 of the 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 (this Regulation being referred to hereafter as CPR).
European Technical AssessmentEdit
EOTA's primary purpose is the drafting of The European Technical Assessment (ETA) which is a document providing information about the performance of a construction product, to be declared in relation to its essential characteristics. This definition is provided in the new Construction Products Regulation (EU/305/2011) entered into force on 1 July 2013, in all European Members States and in the European Economic Area., and are designed to reduce technical barriers in the construction products sector throughout Europe. Once a building product has an ETA certificate, it can display the CE mark and can be sold Europe wide.
