Access to technical standards now free of charge for the general public
Based on diverse legal regulations, a vast number of Czech technical standards are binding for their intended users. This is particularly true in the construction industry as well as other fields where special attention is paid to the protection of public interest. It is therefore essential that since 1 January 2021, these technical standards are accessible to the general public free of charge. Sponsored access to these standards, as it is referred to, was introduced by an amendment to Act No. 22/1997 Coll., on technical requirements for products.
