Welcome to the UBAtc

The Belgian Union for Technical Approval in Construction

We are an association of institutions and organisations which, thanks to our expertise, can contribute to the assessment, approval and certification of construction products. Our mission is to increase confidence in the fitness for use of construction products.

Build the future with confidence

We help you to

Increase trust

Manufacturers placing innovative, unique, complex products and systems on the market need to convince users that these products and systems are fit for use

Manage risks

The construction sector needs innovative solutions to tackle today’s technical and societal challenges, but without taking undue risks.

Facilitate trade

Construction products and kits that are not covered by harmonised standards can benefit from the internal European Union market through European Technical Assessments.

Our solutions

Technical Approval

The fitness for use declaration with certification to convey a message of confidence to the Belgian construction sector

European Technical Assessment

The alternative route to CE marking for products not (fully) covered by harmonised standards

We are hiring!

Working for one of the UBAtc operators

UBAtc provides administrative services only, but the approval and certification operators are regularly looking for new assessors, i.e. new colleagues to help them establish technical approvals and/or perform certification activities.
We suggest that you contact them directly in case you consider yourself a good candidate to become one of our new colleagues.

For trademarks on reused construction products, the principle of “Trademark exhaustion” applies, i.e. the sale of used goods is permitted and the existing trademarks must not be altered or removed when the product is offered for sale again after its initial use.
To protect the interests of the rightful users of the ATG figurative mark, i.e. the holders of technical approvals, the UBAtc board of administrators clarified that the ATG figurative mark may not be used by entities commercialising reused products for which an approval was issued before their first use.

Pile and micropile design

Recently, a number of important changes have taken place with regard to the design of piles and micropiles in Belgium.
A revision of the national annex of the Eurocode 7 was published, namely NBN EN 1997-1 ANB: 2022, which in turn refers to Buildwise Report 20 for the design of piles and micropiles.
In Buildwise Report 20, installation factors, model factors and partial safety measures are proposed for the various pile (sub)categories. No differentiation has been made in all these design factors, in contrast to previous versions (especially Buildwise Reports 12 and 19).
