Verification on the construction site

Verification on the construction site is an approval procedure for construction products in Finland.

Verification on the construction site offers the building supervision authorities an opportunity to ensure that the construction product is safe and fit for the intended use in the building in question.

The building supervision authority can require that the performance of a construction product is verified on the construction site, if:

  • the manufacturer has not demonstrated the characteristics of the construction product in any way, and
  • the building supervision authority has reason to suspect that the product does not fulfil the essential technical requirements.

As in all construction, the final responsibility for ensuring that the construction product is fit for the intended use rests with the party implementing the project.

The party implementing the construction project is responsible for the verification costs.
