Specifying the technical approval, ATG? A new information sheet is at your side

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.
Read more in « Prescrire l’ATG dans les spécifications techniques d’un cahier spécial des charges » or « ATG voorschrijven in de technische bepalingen van een bijzonder bestek ».
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.

Modification of the regulations governing the use and control of the ATG figurative mark

Reuse in the construction sector will become increasingly important. 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).
