Construction products; application for recognition as a testing, inspection and certification body

As impartial third-party bodies, testing, inspection and certification bodies help to ensure that construction products comply with the requirements and can be used safely. Recognition is required in order to operate as such.



The requirements for recognition as a testing, inspection and certification body - and, if applicable, its secondary branch - in accordance with the Bavarian Building Code (BayBO) are regulated in the Construction Products and Types of Construction Ordinance (BauPAV).

The applying body must have the technical prerequisites for carrying out the requested activities as a PÜZ body and the required qualified personnel.

Furthermore, the applying body must guarantee that it, in particular the head and the deputy, is impartial.


Please send your application and the associated documents to the responsible recognition authority, Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt).


The recognition authority shall decide within three months of submission of the complete application documents. It may extend this period by up to two months. The extension must be justified and the applicant must be notified before the original deadline expires.
