Nailing plates for timber construction

In timber construction, nailing plates are used as three-dimensional fasteners. EAD 130186-00-0603 provides the basis for affixing the CE marking to nailing plates.

Regulatory framework

DIBt grants national technical approvals (abZ) for nailing plates

  • when they deviate significantly from the Technical Building Rules (cf. MVV TB, Chapter C 2) or
  • when neither Technical Building Rules nor generally recognised technical rules exist (e.g. innovative products).

European Technical Assessments (ETAs) can also be issued for nailing plates.

For applications comprising nailing plates, DIBt grants general construction technique permits (aBG) when there is no conclusive technical rule for design and execution.

National procedure

A national technical approval (abZ) and/or oder general construction technique permit (aBG) is granted upon application (see Model Building Code (MBO), Sections 16a(2) and18(2) and (4)). This also applies to amendments and supplements to, or renewals of existing approvals and/or construction technique permits.

European Technical Assessment (ETA)

To start the ETA procedure, please submit the form below. We will then check if the prerequisites for issuing an ETA are met, i.e., in particular, if the product is not fully covered by an existing harmonised standard. If the prerequisites are met, we will check whether a European Assessment Document (EAD) covering the requested assessment scope already exists or still needs to be developed. If an EAD needs to be developed or amended, a complete technical file needs to be established before the procedure can begin.
