For whom?

Manufacturers and suppliers of partition kits for non-loadbearing walls.

When is it required?

Drafting an ETA is not mandatory. However, requests for CE-marking by customers are increasingly common for non-loadbearing internal walls.

Process

ETAG 003 describes all requirements, assessment criteria and methods of assessment used applicable for partition kits for non-loadbearing walls.
For certification steps 1-5 apply. Kiwa is happy to guide you trough these steps.

  • Download ETAG 003 from the EOTA website and determine which use categories should be applicable.
  • Request a quotation from Kiwa by using the application form.
  • Have Kiwa prepare an ETA based on ETAG 003. Kiwa also is a Technical Assessment Body (TAB) for ETAG 003. More information can be found on this website.
  • Kiwa will perform an FPC assessment on all criteria for certification based on your ETA. If requirements are met, a certificate will be granted. Any non-conformities first will have to be resolved.
  • In order to maintain your certificate, Kiwa will perform annual audits to verify that processes continuously meet requirements.
