Staples with resin coating
Staples are used in timber construction to permanently connect elements (e.g. wood-based panels, gypsum boards, wood-fibre insulation products) with timber elements.
DIBt issues European Technical Assessments (ETAs) for staples (dowel-type fasteners) with resin coating.
The ETA considers long-term or permanent withdrawal capacity, which is not covered by the harmonised product standard, see DIN EN 14592:2012-08, Clause 126.96.36.199, 4th paragraph).
For applications comprising these staples, DIBt grants general construction technique permits (aBG) when there is no conclusive technical rule for design and execution.
Version: September 2016; OJEU 2017/C 118/04; EOTA
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).

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.Form for requesting a European Technical Assessment (ETA) (2 pages)
