Abstract: The different national regulations in force in Europe in the field of metal anchors lead to the development of a first European UEAtc Directive for the assessment of anchors in 1986 by means of which common principles of testing and a mutual recognition of test results were achieved.

On the basis of this Directive the EOTA (European Organisation for Technical Approval) has elaborated comprehensive compulsory "Guidelines for European Technical Approval of Metal Anchors for Use in Concrete". These Guidelines endorsed in 1997 by the European Commission resulted in the issue of a great number of European Technical Approvals (ETAs) for metal anchors.
