Wood-concrete composite systems

Wood-concrete composite systems consist of a timber element and a concrete slab that are joined together in a shear-resistant manner. The shear-resistant bond can be achieved, for example, using screws, dowels, birdsmouth joints, punched metal plate fasteners, flat steel locks or glued-in sheets. Formwork with or without foil can also be arranged.

Regulatory framework

There are no conclusive technical rules for the design and execution of wood-concrete composite applications, cf. MVV TB, Annex A 1.2.5/1, no. 4. DIBt grants general construction technique permits (aBG) for these construction techniques. The aBG can also be granted in combination with a national technical approval (abZ), when construction products are being used for which no Technical Building Rules (cf. MVV TB Chapter C.2) and no generally recognised technical rules exist.

European Technical Assessments (ETAs) can also be issued for wood-concrete composite products.

Application forms

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.
