Construction products in harmonised and non-harmonised sectors
Draft Act amending the Act on construction products, with the final draft Act
The adoption of the Act amending the Act on construction products provides for the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2019/515 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 19 March 2019 on the mutual recognition of goods lawfully marketed in another Member State and repealing Regulation (EC) No 764/2008 (Text with EEA relevance) (OJ L 91/1, 29.3.2019) and Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 June 2019 on market surveillance and compliance of products and amending Directive 2004/42/EC and Regulations (EC) No 765/2008 and (EU) No 305/2011 (Text with EEA relevance). (OJ L 169/1, 25.6.2019).
It also lays down the continuity of HTO [hrvatska tehnička ocjena, Croatian Technical Assessment] validity (new HTOs and those that were already issued and valid on the date of adoption of this Act) until the adoption of harmonised technical specification or the adoption of the Croatian standard or technical regulation for a construction product for which the HTO was issued, which provides the possibility of uninterrupted circulation and availability of the construction product on the market, and of its installation in a structure. It is important to note that this also simplifies maintenance and reconstruction of structures.
