All Item Groups Item Code: EPS & Infrastructure Industry
EN 13163, which has been in effect since May 13, 2003 and is required for all EU nations, defines the characteristics of EPS insulating materials for buildings and associated test procedures. The applicable standard for applications in civil engineering is EN 14933. Additional standards, such as those for installed equipment, are being developed. These harmonised European standards contain a list of characteristics and test procedures, both for general and application-specific uses.
After first type testing by a recognised body and taking into account the conformity requirements in EN 13172, the manufacturer is permitted to put the CE marking on the product and announces the properties of the specified product. 'Local' building rules compliance is decided by each unique project based on the final product's performance level.
