EUROPEAN TECHNICAL ASSESSMENT (ETA)
For construction products which are not or not completely covered by a harmonized standard, the CE marking and the participation in the free movement of goods on the European market can only be achieved on the basis of an European Technical Assessment (ETA).

LUXIB was designated as Technical Assessment Body (TAB) by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in 2019 and is therefore authorized to carry out European Technical Assessments and issue ETAs.
