About Us

Proud member of:

Our mission

Since its creation, the main objective of the UBAtc has been to provide all stakeholders in the construction sector with a simple and reliable way to ensure the suitability of an innovative product for use

Our services

The technical approvals and assessments carried out by (the operators of) UBAtc asbl lead to declarations of fitness for use and European Technical Assessments that help to control the technical risks when using the assessed products and contribute to the quality of the construction works and the construction process.

Our organisation

The non-profit organisation “UBAtc asbl” is supported by all major actors in the Belgian construction sector and the impartiality of the executive institutes functioning as a network. 

Our partners

In addition to bilateral cooperation with approval organizations, the UBAtc is a member of the international organizations UEAtc, EOTA and WFTAO.
This allows UBAtc asbl to deliver European Technical Assessments in addition to the technical approvals, ATG, and improves the basic knowledge of the organisation, which improves the quality of the approvals and assessments, but can also lead to a simplified conversion of the Technical Approvals, ATG, to approvals issued by organizations in other countries.
Since 2011, UBAtc also provides the secretariat of UEAtc.

Our history

More than 60 years dedicated to the quality and security in the building sector.

The Technical Approval was introduced in 1960 in order to provide innovative construction products, which do not have a normative framework, with a reliable assessment of their suitability for use.
