BS EN 12620:2002+A1:2008

Aggregates for concrete

Status : Work in hand, Current   Published : October 2002
Conformity to regulation : Designated



BS EN 12620 specifies the properties of aggregates and filler aggregates obtained by processing natural, manufactured or recycled materials and mixtures of these aggregates for use in concrete. It covers aggregates having an oven dried particle density greater than 2,00 Mg/m3 (2 000 kg/m3) for all concrete, including concrete in conformity with BS EN 206-1 and concrete used in roads and other pavements and for use in precast concrete products. BS EN 12620 also covers recycled aggregate with densities between 1,50 Mg/m3 (1 500 kg/m3) and 2,00 Mg/m3 (2 000 kg/m3) with appropriate caveats and recycled fine aggregate (4 mm) with appropriate caveats.

BS EN 12620 specifies that a quality control system is in place for use in factory production control and it provides for the evaluation of conformity of the products to this European Standard.

This standard does not cover filler aggregates to be used as a constituent in cement or as other than inert filler aggregates for concrete.

The key changes made to BS EN 12620 include:

• The implementation of CEN amendment A1:2008
• The implementation of CEN corrigendum May 2004, replacement in Clause 1 of Note 1, correction to Figure ZA.1 and Figure ZA.3
