European Assessment Document
Firestopping of service penetrations, Best practice in design and installation, was published in 2020. It is a collaboration between ASFP (Association for Specialist Fire Protection), FIS (Finishes and Interiors Sector), GPDA (Gypsum Products Development Association), BESA (Building Engineering Services Association) and BSRIA (Building Services Research and Information Association).
It defines an EAD (European Assessment Document) as a: ‘Documentation of the methods and criteria accepted in European Organisation for Technical Assessment (EOTA) as being applicable for the assessment of the performance of a construction product in relation to its essential characteristics.’
NB Low Carbon Concrete Routemap, Setting the agenda for a path to net zero, draft for consultation published by the Institution of Civil Engineers in 2021, states: ‘The European technical assessment (ETA) is an alternative for construction products not covered by a harmonised standard. It is a document providing information on their performance assessment. The procedure is established in the construction products regulation and offers a way for manufacturers to draw up the declaration of performance and affix the CE marking.’
