NS 3420- Specification texts for building, construction and installations 32 sections Example from section I5 – Roads, railroads and airports:
Standards used in the concrete industry • NS-EN 12620 Aggregates for concrete • NS-EN 13055-1 Lightweight aggregates • NS-EN 13139 Aggregates for mortar Bound aggregates: Attestation of conformity system – module 2+
The Norwegian Concrete Association (Norsk Betongforening, NB) is a professional society with 914 members (as per June 30, 2004). • Make publication for manufacturing concrete • updated according to 12620 • (and other EN-standards)
NS-EN 13450 Aggregates for railway ballast • Jernbaneverket, the Norwegian National Rail Administration, is delayed in the implementation of the EN-standards • producers must be certified from next year
NS-EN 13383-1 Armourstone • Not implemented
Summarize • CEN/TC154 Standards for: • concrete industry– implementation OK • road construction – partly implemented, but still a lot of work to be done • railways – delayed • armourstone – not implemented
