Abstract [en]

In most countries the structural codes has since long moved from simple deemed-to-satisfy approaches to a performance thinking. As regards the properties of non-load bearing parts of buildings and hence building products the state-of-the-art is still more complex, but the performance road is evident. The European Construction Products Directive, CPD (Council directive 89/106/EEC), which states that the Essential Requirements on constructed works should be met during the intended working life of the building results in essence in a performance requirement on all building products. The life performance of the materials and products has to be assessed and declared. The article accounts for the ongoing work within the EU FP5 Thematic Network PeBBu (Performance Based Building) and how this in the area of building products is connected to the standardisation operated by ISO TC59/SC 14 Design Life. The standardisation within ISO has both historic and novel connections to CEN and to the CPD.
