General Policy and Expert Committees

General Policy Committees

The general policy committees advise DIBt on general, interdisciplinary, technical and legal questions. At the moment, DIBt has three general policy committees:

  • General Policy Committee for horizontal questions concerning verification of fitness for use (GA 1)

  • General Policy Committee advising the Institute on matters of immission control, health protection and occupational safety (GA 2)

  • General Policy Committee advising the Institute on matters of water and soil protection (GA 3)

Expert Committees

For questions relating to the assessment of construction products and techniques, DIBt can rely on the broad expertise of approx. 50 expert committees working in different specialty areas.

More than 500 honorary experts from research institutes, the industry and administration contribute to this unique network. The committees cover all aspects of civil engineering, from structural design, health and environmetal asspects to fire safety and building services. Other expert committees address questions related to the recognition of testing laboratories as well as inspection and certification bodies.

The honorary experts are appointed by the Supervisory Board

Product innovations today are often highly complex and can only be assessed on the basis of interdisciplinary knowledge. Being able to draw on the vast technical expertise of renowned specialists is thus a big advantage for DIBt, its customers and partners. Its one-of-a-kind expert network, combining a wealth of practical and scientific experience, allows DIBt to offer its partners optimal approval and assessment solutions for construction products and techniques.
