European standards for surface dressings and slurry surfacings

The European standards for surface dressings (EN 12271 Surface dressing – Requirements) and slurry surfacings (EN 12273 Slurry surfacing – Requirements) have been approved by CEN working group TC227/WG2. One of the prominent features of these standards is that they set performance requirements rather than prescribing “recipes”. For some requirements the standards leave a number of options to the countries themselves. The options selected for surface dressings and slurry surfacings in Belgium have been laid down in two separate national application documents, and the standard tender specifications of the three regions in Belgium have been adapted accordingly (since the versions SB 250 v2.2, Qualiroutes 2012, and CCT 2011).

Both standards are product standards with annex ZA. As a result, surface dressings and slurry surfacings are subject to the regulations on CE marking.
