How to find a TAB?

A Technical Assessment Body (TAB) is in charge of the technical assessment of construction products and is entitled to issue European Technical Assessments (ETAs).

EU Member and Partner States have designated TABs for one or more product areas. These product areas are specified in Annex IV to the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011. A search function below allows to filter TABs by product area and/or country. Please contact the TAB(s) chosen for further information or a quotation. 

Note: EOTA has categorized ETAGs in these product areas accordingly.
