Overview of the AVCP systems

There are five AVCP systems

Many construction products are of major importance to construction works. Therefore, it may be necessary to subject certain construction products to an independent third party assessment and/or verification.

However, not all construction products need the same form of assessment and/or verification. Not all the same construction products have the same signification for construction works.


 Third-party assessments and manufacturers' tasks are therefore categorised into various systems, known as systems for assessment and verification of the constancy of performance of construction products (hereafter the AVCP-systems). There are five systems which describe manufacturers' tasks, and what tasks are to be carried out by a third party.

An overview of these AVCP systems can be found in "related links" on the right.
