Latest results on action against MVV TB model building regulations
22.07.2019 | SWISS KRONO Group
Relevant provisions of the Technical Building Regulations (VwV TB) have been suspended
January 2019 – An urgent appeal to the Higher Administrative Court in Mannheim has been decided in favor of SWISS KRONO Group. The relevant provisions of the Technical Building Regulations (VwV TB) have been suspended until a decision is reached in the main action. The court took the lack of VOC emissions in OSB products into account, and thus decided that the conditions for authorizing the Baden-Württemberg building regulations had not been fulfilled.
In December 2018, SWISS KRONO Group filed an application with the administrative courts of Baden-Württemberg and Saxony to review the standards pursuant to § 47 of the Administrative Court Ordinance (VwGo). The objective was to review the legality of individual items in the VwV TB.
SWISS KRONO Group already meets all requirements for low-emission building products today, and will continue to do so in the future. The Group believes it is extremely important that uniform guidelines have international validity. This is because SWISS KRONO Group is committed to a uniform European regulation of VOC emissions from construction products as a way of defending the principles of the EU internal market.
