There is no way for advertising on In order for a company to become listed among the high quality suppliers the required evidence (e.g. test reports, certificates, approvals or inspection reports) issued by a recognized testing institute have to be submitted. Once compliance with the respective product standards is assured, the material can be added to the existing list of building materials. A link is added which directs users to the website of the company or product. As a result of the listing on, the manufacturer is regarded as a proven high quality supplier. Frequent maintenance and continuous updating ensures a high quality level of information. Therefore the relevant evidence and support data has to be submitted every six months or at least once per year. Companies are required to pay a fee for incorporation into the database to support the quality assurance of the information presented and its maintenance. An overview of the annual fees is given below.

The listing of a new category of building materials can be completed upon a companys request. However, this requires a standard compulsory or voluntary evidence by the company. The documents have to be submitted before this can be included. The fee for the listing of a new group of building materials is determined on a case-by-case basis and will be negotiated with the respective groups of building materials or the manufacturer directly.
