EAD1 Guidelines for Technical Approval

The guidelines set out the performance obligations to demonstrate 'Fitness for Purpose' and address the essential requirements of the Construction Products Directive (CPD):

  • Mechanical resistance and stability
  • Safety in case of fire
  • Hygiene, health and the environment
  • Safety in use
  • Protection against noise
  • Energy economy and heat retention
  • Aspects of durability and serviceability.

EAD 040083-00-0404 European Assessment Document of External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems with Rendering

EAD 040083-00-0404 specifies complete system and component (insulation, anchors, profiles and their fixings, render and reinforcement) tests; assessments can provide the manufacturer with the opportunity to CE mark their systems.

EAD 030350-00-0402 European Assessment Document of Liquid Applied Roof Waterproofing Kits

EAD 030350-00-0402 specifies complete system tests; assessments can provide the manufacturer with the opportunity to CE mark their systems.

EAD 030351-00-0402 European Assessment Document of Systems of Mechanically Fastened Flexible Roof Waterproofing Membranes

EAD 030351-00-0402 specifies complete system and component (insulation, membrane and mechanical fasteners) tests; assessments can provide the manufacturer with the opportunity to CE mark their systems.

EAD 040914-00-0404 European Assessment Document of Veture Kits – Prefabricated units for external wall insulation and their fixing devices

EAD 040914-00-0404 specifies complete system and component (skin, adhesive, insulation and fixing) tests; assessments can provide the manufacturer with the opportunity to CE mark their systems.

EAD 090062-00-0404 European Assessment Document of Kits for External Wall Claddings mechanically fixed

EAD 090062-00-0404 specifies complete system and component (cladding components, associated fixings, sub frame and insulation) tests; assessments can provide the manufacturer with the opportunity to CE mark their systems.

Lucideon is UKAS accredited to ISO 17025 and able to conduct the tests required to demonstrate system and component 'Fitness for Purpose'.

Within the structures laboratory, Lucideon has fully compliant performance testing rigs. The rigs enable testing to EADs 040083-00-0404, 030350-00-0402, 030351-00-0402, 040914-00-0404 and 090062-00-0404 and M.O.A.T. 22, as well as customized testing of walling systems developed as Modern Methods of Construction.

1Since 2013, when the CPD was superseded by the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011 (CPR), they are in use as European Assessment Documents (EAD) in accordance with Art. 66 of this Regulation. However, EOTA and the European Commission agreed that EOTA should convert all ETAGs into EADs.
