Irish Market Surveillance Campaign 2019
The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government has announced a Market Surveillance Campaign in 2019:
The Market Surveillance Authorities responsible for the Construction Products Regulations are carrying out a Market Surveillance Campaign, with the support of the National Building Control Office and The Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government. These campaigns support compliant business and ensure that safe, reliable products are placed on the Irish Market. They also have the effect of regularising bad practice and facilitating a level playing field for business.
The objective of the Market Surveillance Authority is to ensure that only products compliant with the Construction Products Regulation (EU) No 305/2011, are placed on the market.
If you receive a visit, the Market Surveillance Authority will primarily check that you have applied the CE Marking correctly and that you have all the required documentation in place. Please see the attached information note for further details.
For more detailed information, contact the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government:

Environmental Technology Verification (ETV)
Manufacturers of environmental technologies interested in obtaining officially recognized proof of product quality and performance, may take part in the new EU program for the Verification of Environmental Technologies (ETV). Environmental technologies for water treatment and reuse that qualify for the ETV program are such products that are ready to market or finishing pre-commercial development, with performance claims not covered by existing regulations and standards. In accordance with ISO 14034:2016 these products may be verified by an independent accredited institution to assess selected quality and performance parameters. The ISO 14034:2016 standard was introduced to support manufacturers in introduction and marketing of environmental products, by providing them with the opportunity to acquire an official European ETV verification. Ascertaining and proving individual advantages and selected performance claims for environmental products on the basis of independent verification may thus improve investor and customer resonance as well and lead to overall marketing advantages.
The ISO 14034:2016 method describes multiple steps that lead to the issuing of an official verification statement. PIA supports companies to participate in the ETV program, including initial ETV request, composition of a detailed ETV application and the handling of the overall testing process. In its role as an accredited testing laboratory, PIA offers to conduct practical hands-on testing procedures in accordance with an EN ISO/IEC 17025 when required. After completion, the ETV program is concluded with the issuing of the official ETV verification statement.
