London, 13 March 2008
After several decades of preparation, the CEN package of asphalt standards was been published. The specifications became harmonised standards in March 2008, by which time all equivalent national standards across Europe hadto be withdrawn.
What did the conference cover?
The seminar looked at the implications of the change; from the standards that each national standardisation could modify, to local conditions and contract conditions, to common standards that have to fit everybody's conditions.
