Status : Current, Project Underway   Published : May 2003
Conformity to regulation : Designated



BS EN 1338:2003 specifies materials, properties, requirements and test methods for unreinforced cement bound concrete paving blocks and complementary fittings. It is applicable to precast concrete paving blocks and complementary fittings for pedestrian use, vehicular use and roof coverings, e.g. footpaths, precincts, cycle tracks, car parks, roads, highways, industrial areas (including docks and harbours), aircraft pavements, bus stations, petrol filling stations.

This standard does not deal with the tactility or visibility of blocks or with permeable blocks.

This standard provides for the product marking and the evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard.

NotesThis standard is the subject of transitional arrangements agreed under a European Commission mandate and is intended to lead to CE marking in support of the Construction Products Directive. In order to allow for any changes in national regulations, the Commission in consultation with Member States has agreed a transition period for the co-existence of EN 1338 and corresponding national standards. Therefore at the end of this period BS 6717:2001 will be withdrawn.
