Sectoral operator for E227 Road Materials

Ever since CEN/TC 227 Road Materials was formed in the late eighties, that is, before there were any plans to reorganize the standardization landscape in Belgium, BRRC has been a pioneer and an active participant in this committee. The main focus at the time was on the activities of WG1 Bituminous Mixtures and WG2 Surface Dressing, Sprays and Slurry Surfacing (incorporating Microsurfacing).

Earthworks and (sub)base layers

Earthworks and earthmoving projects are indisputably important in the construction of transport infrastructure. They have a decisive impact on the economics and environment-friendliness of a road project and more generally on the observance of the concept of sustainable development.

The specifications applying to the execution and inspection of earthworks wary widely from one country to the next. One of the objectives of CEN technical committee TC396 Earthworks is to try and harmonize them.
