- to fix roof or cladding elements to the timber structure, with or without insulation layers; and

- as reinforcement inserted in timber or in a glue laminated timber element to improve its resistance to compression perpendicular to the grain.

This document specifies also the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) procedures and includes requirements for marking of dowel-type fasteners.

This document covers dowel-type fasteners that may be coated for the following purposes:

- corrosion protection;
