European Technical Approval (ETA) for a construction product is a favourable technical evaluation regarding the suitability of the product for a designated use. This is based on compliance with six Essential Requisites (ER) established by Directive 89/106/CEE on Construction Products (CPD):
ER 1. Mechanical Resistance and Stability
ER 2. Fire Safety
ER 3. Hygiene, Health and the Environment
ER 4. Safety in Use
ER 5. Noise Protection
ER 6. Energy Saving and Thermal Insulation
The ETA establishes the necessary regulatory framework for all products released on the market. Should applicable regulations not exist for a product the ETA ensures and guarantees compliance with necessary requirements for operation.
