ETAG 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.

ETAG 004 Guideline for European Technical Approval of External Thermal Insulation Composite Systems with Rendering

ETAG 004 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.

ETAG 005 Guideline for European Technical Approval of Liquid Applied Roof Waterproofing Kits

ETAG 005 specifies complete system tests; assessments can provide the manufacturer with the opportunity to CE mark their systems.

ETAG 006 Guideline for European Technical Approval of Systems of Mechanically Fastened Flexible Roof Waterproofing Membranes

ETAG 006 specifies complete system and component (insulation, membrane and mechanical fasteners) tests; assessments can provide the manufacturer with the opportunity to CE mark their systems.

ETAG 017 Guideline for European Technical Approval of Veture Kits – Prefabricated Units for External Wall Insulation

ETAG 017 specifies complete system and component (skin, adhesive, insulation and fixing) tests; assessments can provide the manufacturer with the opportunity to CE mark their systems.

ETAG 034 Guideline for European Technical Approval of Kits for External Wall Claddings

ETAG 034 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.
