The present paper describes the benefits of using a common failure assessment template when carrying out failure assessments of buildings. A common failure template is proposed. This template is targeted for failures which occur in timber buildings. This template has been tested by various experts in Europe and positive feedback has been received so far. However, it is foreseen that further developments on this procedure will probably need to be done.
