This European Standard provides specifications for two types of variable message signs (VMS); i.e. continuous (see 3.4) and discontinuous (see 3.7).
This European Standard covers mobile, temporary and permanently installed VMS used in circulation areas, on public and private land, including tunnels for the information, guidance, warning and/or direction of traffic. Test modules are used to demonstrate compliance with the requirements.
This European Standard specifies visual and physical characteristics of VMS as well as their durability aspects. It also provides relevant requirements and corresponding test methods, assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) and marking.
NOTE Provisions for the evaluation of conformity with regards to type testing are further specified in 6.2; provisions with regards to factory production control (FPC) are further specified in 6.3.
This European Standard does not cover
a) sign gantries, cantilevers, posts (supports) and foundations,
b) signal heads,
c) sizes and shapes of VMS messages,
d) control units and monitoring units unless inside the VMS,
e) control of sign luminance.

This European Standard specifies requirements for evaluation of conformity of the following vehicle restraint systems:
a) safety barriers;
b) crash cushions;
c) terminals (will be effective when ENV 1317-4 becomes an EN);
d) transitions (will be effective when ENV 1317-4 becomes an EN);
e) vehicle / pedestrian parapets (only for the vehicle restraint function).
Pedestrian parapet requirements are not covered in this document. Requirements for the evaluation of durability with respect to weathering are included in this document.
Requirements for other forms of durability (e.g. marine environment, sand abrasion) are not included. Temporary barriers are not within the scope of this document.

This European Standard contains provisions for the measurement of performance of products for the road restraint systems, under impact and impact severity levels, and includes:
- Test site data;
- Definitions for road restraint systems;
- Vehicle specification (including loading requirements) for vehicles used in the impact tests;
- Instrumentation for the vehicles;
- Calculation procedures and methods of recording crash impact data including impact severity levels;
- VCDI.
The modifications included in this standard are not a change of test criteria, in the sense of
EN 1317-5:2007+A1:2008, ZA.3.

This Part 2 of EN 12899 specifies requirements for new transilluminated traffic bollards (TTBs) including their fixing, which may incorporate traffic signs (type 1 TTB) or may support traffic signs (type 2 TTB) to be used in traffic circulation areas.
It covers performance requirements and test methods.
Colorimetric and retroreflective properties as well as luminance of transilluminated illuminated portions are specified taking into account CIE recommendations.
Structural requirements for TTBs include performance under static and dynamic loading.
Provision is made for safety in use, including vehicle impact.
Devices of similar function, but without transillumination or less than 600 mm in height, are not covered.
NOTE   Foundations are not specified in this standard but should be adequate to support the loads to be carried.
Unless otherwise stated, clauses in this standard apply to both type 1 and type 2 TTBs.

This Part 3 of EN 12899 specifies requirements for new delineator posts and for new retroreflectors as separate products or combined together to be used in traffic circulation areas.
It covers performance requirements and test methods.
Colorimetric and retroreflective properties are specified taking into account CIE recommendations.
Structural requirements include performance under static and dynamic loading.
Provision is made for safety in use, including vehicle impact.
To define durability this standard also includes performance levels to be maintained after natural weathering exposure.
No requirements are given for the use of colours, dimensions and tolerances of delineator posts and retroreflectors.

This Part 1 of EN 12899 specifies requirements for complete sign assemblies (including supports), signs (sign plates with sign faces), sign plates (without sign faces) and for other major components (retroreflective sheeting, supports and luminaires).
The main intended use of fixed signs is for the instruction and guidance of road users on public and private land.
Matters not covered by this standard:
a)   sign gantry and cantilever structures;
b)   signs with discontinuous messages, e.g. using light emitting diodes (LED), or fibre optics;
c)   variable message signs;
d)   signs used for temporary purposes;
e)   foundations;
f)   tests for extremely low temperatures.

This European Standard specifies the requirements for individual electrically operated light devices, called warning lights, emitting a continuous or regular intermittent light of a single colour which, by their colour and position alone, are used to warn, inform or guide road users. It specifies the requirements for visual, structural and operational performances and the relevant test methods to be used. These devices rely upon existing furniture to provide the mounting.
This European Standard is not applicable to lighting devices which convey messages by additional means (e.g. variable message signs) or which convey a mandatory instruction (e.g. traffic signals) or which are covered by vehicle lighting regulations.
This European Standard does not consider horizontal loads because it is the mounting to which they are fixed, which is not covered by this European Standard, which has to resist applied horizontal loads.

This standard specifies the characteristics of an anti-glare system in terms of their optical effectiveness and the mechanical performance of its elements. Performance criteria are specified in relation to tests provided in the accompanying EN: Anti-Glare Systems - Test Methods. Optical performance of the AGS may also be determined by calculation as specified in the present standard, clause 5.1.1. This standard also makes recommendations for the design of AGS to minimize maintenance.

This part of EN 1317 is a supporting standard to EN 1317-5 and should also be read in conjunction with EN 1317-1 and EN 1317-2.
This part of EN 1317 completes EN 1317-2 because it specifies performance for transitions, considered as the linkage between safety barriers of different types.
This European Standard specifies the direction of impact and the impact points, for the assessment of transitions and removable barrier sections. It also defines the rules to be followed in the design of transitions that cannot be CE marking.
