UEAtc Statement with regards to the situation in Ukraine

As a Paneuropean organisation, UEAtc brings together technical assessment bodies on a purely voluntary basis, to support technical harmonisation for the benefit of the construction sector.

Ukraine is a respected member.

UEAtc demonstrates how peoples and countries have come together, to work for peace and prosperity, aiming at mutual understanding and tolerance across borders, while at the same time being enriched by the many different cultures, traditions, and languages of the European continent.

We have welcomed NIISK, the State Research Institute of Building Constructions, in a spirit of openness and by enlarging the consensus area to meet the new challenges as energy performance improvement and sustainability together to preserve our planet and our civilisation.

Within this vision, war has no place and the aggression and human suffering that we witness in Ukraine can never be acceptable and are completely incompatible with all the values we stand for, such as the fundamental principles of freedom, democracy, and self-determination.

The UEAtc stands in solidarity and our thoughts are with our Ukrainian colleagues and friends from NIISK, the National Approval Body of the Ukraine, and with all Ukrainian people. War stands for failure, not for authority.

Benny De Blaere, President of UEAtc
Eric Winnepenninckx, Secretary-general.

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).
