Next Technical Seminar
Conformity and Identity Testing to EN206
A joint Irish Concrete Society and Concrete Society (NI Region) technical seminar
Date: 30 March 2021 | Venue: Online Event
EN 206:2013+A1-2016 is the current European standard for the specification and production of concrete. However, many conformity and compliance aspects are specified in accompanying national provisions. On the island of Ireland, two such national provisions apply, with Irish National Annex I.S. EN 206:2013/NA: 2015 in the Republic of Ireland and BS 8500-1:2015+A2:2019 and BS 8500-2:2015+A2:2019 applicable in Northern Ireland.
This free one-hour technical seminar will provide important information on the requirements for conformity and identity testing, and will highlight the differences between the two national provisions. Delivered by compliance and certification experts, explanations will be given on producer and customer responsibilities, in addition to testing requirements for both strength and non-strength properties.
Who should attend
This presentation will be of interest to all those who are involved in the design, specification and construction of concrete. Those who should attend include concrete producers, engineers in contracting firms, consulting engineers, concrete technologists, and site supervisory personnel.
