Information sheets have been published on our website for some time, albeit sporadically. Information sheets cover various topics to assist the users of our solutions.
A new information sheet (only available in French and Dutch) was added to the series recently. It is primarily addressed to specifiers who wonder how a reference to the technical approval, ATG, can be included in the technical specifications. Some guidance is especially useful within public procurement. We called on reputable lawyers and summarized the facts.
The information sheet succinctly covers specifying in private and public contexts, but also the subsequent verification of conformity with that prescription. It also mentions the necessary template clauses so that you can get started right away.

The information sheet is a starting point to subsequently support users in specifying per sector, per family of approvals and, if necessary, per individual technical approval.
Publication of Technical approval texts for Foundation piles
A new scheme has been launched for the Technical Approval of foundation piles with certification. To this end, a collaboration has been set up between the approval operators SECO and Buildwise, the certification operator BCCA and independent experts in the field of foundation piles. The development of this scheme was initiated at the request of the sector itself.
