Who decide which AVCP system is applicable?

The European Commission decides

The European Commission decides which AVCP systems are applicable to groups of construction products.

In this respect, the European Commission uses four main criteria: 

  • The significance of the construction product in construction works,
  • The type of construction product involved,
  • The extent to which the performances of the construction product vary over time, and
  •  The probabilities of defects in the production process.

All construction products must be subject to one or more specific systems. Use our "search for attestation of conformity" function to search for the applicable decisions from the European Commission.

Harmonised product standards (in supplement ZA.2) and European assessment documents include information on the assessment and verification system to be used.
