Construction Products Lists / Technical Building Rules

The Building Codes of the individual German states (Landesbauordnungen) stipulate that technical rules which have been introduced by the Supreme Building Authorities of the German federal states through official publication are to be followed. One of the tasks of Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik is to consolidate these technical rules for construction products and types of construction in the Construction Products Lists A and B (Bauregellisten) as well as in List C and to publish them in agreement with the Supreme Building Authorities of the German federal states.

On behalf of the German federal states, Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik also prepares the introduction of the List of Technical Building Rules (Liste der Technischen Baubestimmungen).

Construction Products Lists
(Bauregellisten)

The Lists are revised twice a year and published on the DIBt website.

Bauregelliste A Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3

  • Bauregelliste A Part 1
    Bauregelliste A Part 1 contains the construction products for which technical rules exist (regulated construction products), the rules themselves, the required attestation of conformity and in case of deviations the necessary verifications of applicability.
  • Bauregelliste A Part 2
    Bauregelliste A Part 2 applies to non-regulated construction products which either do not serve to fulfill essential requirements for the safety of construction works and for which generally acknowledged technical rules do not exist or which are evaluated in accordance with generally recognised test methods.
  • Bauregelliste A Part 3
    Bauregelliste A Part 3 applies to non-regulated types of construction accordingly.

Bauregelliste B Part 1 and Part 2

  • Bauregelliste B Part 1
    Bauregelliste B Part 1 is reserved for products which are placed on the market  in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation and for which technical specifications as well as – depending on the intended use – classes and performance levels exist.
    Additionally, the List of Technical Building Rules (Liste der Technischen Baubestimmungen) specifies the application standards and other application provisions for construction products and kits covered by harmonised technical specifications (hEN, ETAGs, EADs, ETAs) in accordance with the Construction Products Regulation.
  • Bauregelliste B Part 2
    Bauregelliste B Part 2 contains construction products which are placed on the market in accordance with provisions transposing EC directives, bear a CE marking and do not meet the essential requirements in accordance with Article 3(1) of the Construction Products Regulation. Therefore, additional proofs of fitness for use are necessary.  

List C
List C contains non-regulated construction products for which neither Technical Building Rules (Technische Baubestimmungen) nor other technical rules exist and which do not significantly contribute to the fulfillment of the regulatory requirements.
