Prior to the last meeting of the Standing Committee for Construction (SCC) the European Commission (EC) circulated a proposal how to proceed to establish European large-scale fire-assessments of ETICS. It offered two options to Member States and mentioned the EAE statement.
AE commented on the EC proposal:
More details can be taken from EAE’s position paper.
Already in June 2014 the EAE started to express its concerns looking at the situation at Member State level regarding the requirements for large-scale fire-testing of façade systems. EAE we would like to express the willingness to support efforts to improve customer safety European wide and to establish a common market for construction products. Both will be essential to achieve Europe’s ambitious energy efficiency objectives and to generate sustainable growth in the construction business.
