BS EN 12271:2006 Surface dressing. Requirements

BS EN 12271 describes the performance requirements and control procedures for the installation of surface dressing as a product for the surface treatment of roads and other trafficked areas.

Surface dressing consists of at least one layer of binder and at least one layer of chippings.

BS EN 12271 does not apply to:

  • Surface dressings designed by the purchaser or to surface dressings carried out in tunnels and where fire regulations apply
  • Small areas of surface dressing on roads that are less than 500 m2 which are not contiguous (for example patch repair surface dressing especially when carried out manually)
  • Aircraft pavements that are covered by international regulations, for example, International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulations (airfields).
