Construction products detail

Precast concrete products

Precast concrete products are products made of concrete, reinforced concrete or prestressed concrete which are manufactured at a location other than the final place of use.

Precast concrete products are the result of an industrial process. Their manufacture is subject to external surveillance in the precast concrete plant.

Regulatory framework

Numerous precast concrete products and construction techniques comprising precast concrete products that are relevant from a regulatory point of view are used in structural engineering.

DIBt grants national technical approvals (abZ) for precast concrete products that

  • significantly deviate from the Technical Building Rules (cf., in particular, MVV TB, Part C) or
  • for which neither Technical Building Rules nor generally recognised technical rules exist.

European Technical Assessments (ETAs) can also be issued for precast concrete products.

For construction techniques comprising these products, DIBt grants general construction technique permits (aBG) if, regarding design and execution,

  • there are significant deviations from the Technical Building Rules (cf. MVV TB, Part A) or
  • no generally recognised technical rules exist.

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.

No formal requirements apply. The following information is needed: name and address of the applicant, description of the product and/or construction technique and its field of use or application, type of decision required (new decision, amendment or supplement to, or renewal of, an existing decision).

Please feel free to use the template below.

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.
