Background to the abolition of the Ü-mark 2016::
In the past, due to German additional requirements, CE-marked construction products sometimes had to be additionally labeled with the Ü-mark on the labels. For VIACOR, the GREEN LINE ECO systems were affected, i.e. the VOC-tested AgBB systems, all of which have a “allgemeine bauaufsichtliche Zulassung” (general building authority approval, abZ) of the German DiBt valid until 10-2016. In these cases, the construction products concerned were marked with the European CE mark according to EN 13813 and the German Ü-mark for indoor emission control. The European Commission has brought an action against Germany before the European Court of Justice (ECJ). In its judgment in Case C-100/13 of 16 October 2014, the ECJ ruled that it is inadmissible for EU Member States to impose national additional requirements (Ü-Zeichen) on European harmonized (CE-marked) construction products. As a result, Germany has submitted an amended Musterbauordnung (MBO), which is the basis for the amendment of the building regulations of the federal states (Landesbauordnungen LBO). It is no longer possible to obtain abZ /abP for CE-marked building products. Already obtained abP and abZ lose their validity for CE-marked construction products with the entry into force of the relevant state building regulations. However, existing ABP and ABZ can still be used to prove additional product properties under private or contractual law that are not covered by the CE marking or declaration of performance.
The 2-year transitional period for Germany ended in October 2016. Since then, VIACOR has no longer attached any Ü-marks to the labels of the products in the above-mentioned systems. Stock items with Ü-mark, which were manufactured before 16.10.2016, can be used as normal. Thanks to the new certification, VIACOR Polymer GmbH has ensured that the performance and quality of the products concerned are maintained in the usual way.
