Default Earth Bond

I have read quite a few forums but I did not find a sufficient answer for this.

What are the approved solder tags to use for safety earth bond?

I have 3 options: all of them are made of brass, but the first has no coating, the second is silver coated, and the last one is tin coated with teeth.

Which one is the best choice? Implying that the contact should remain cleaner for ages.

Most CE stamped goods use a crimp or soldered plain tinned copper eye with a post and M3 or M4 nylock nut and shake proof washer for domestic equipment.

Today I went to the electronics store, where I was informed that the official way of earthing something is to use this and crimp it. I was surprised to hear that soldering is also not advised. If you are willing to solder it you may do so, but crimping is mandatory.

Most are crimped many are soldered. If soldered, the cable must be firmly tie-wrapped to the chassis as the solder makes the wire become less flexible, (solid) and may break off if flexed.
Please see IEC TR 61000-5-2:1997 - European Standards
for up to date requirements in the EU.
