Geotextiles and geotextile-related products - Required characteristics for use in the construction of reservoirs and dams

This European Standard specifies the relevant characteristics of geotextiles and geotextile-related products used in the construction reservoirs and dams, and the appropriate test methods to determine these characteristics. The intended use of these geotextiles or geotextile-related products is to fulfil one or more of the following functions: filtration, separation, reinforcement and protection. The separation function is always used in conjunction with filtration or reinforcement, accordingly separation will never be specified alone. This standard is not applicable to geomembranes. This standard provides for the evaluation of conformity of the product to this European Standard and for factory production control procedures. This standard defines requirements to be met by manufacturers and distributors with regard to the presentation of product properties.NOTE 1 Particular application cases or national specifications may contain requirements regarding additional properties and - preferably standardised - test methods, if they are technically relevant and not conflicting with European Standards. NOTE 2 This European Standard may be used to derive design values by taking into account
factors within the context of the definitions given in Eurocode 7 (ENV 1997-1), e.g. factors of safety. The design life of the product should be determined, since its function may be temporary, as a construction expediency, or permanent, for the lifetime of the structure.

EN 13254:2000/A1:2005 (E)
A.2 Checklist for the assessment of a factory production control (FPC)
system.

NOTE This checklist has been developed for CE marking, but may also be used for the purpose of voluntary

certification systems.
A.2.1 General

A factory production control system can only be applicable to one production site. In case of several

production lines at the same site, all of them shall be checked.

The results of audits performed by a quality management system certification body (e.g. for ISO

9001:2000 certification) can be taken into account, although such certificate is not compulsory.

The FPC shall cover specified product ranges produced on the same production site. Each product

covered by the FPC shall be clearly identified. To add a new product to the covered range, the

producer shall submit the results of the initial type testing of the new product for an extension of the

FPC system. This shall be taken into account at the next follow-up inspection. In case of a new

production process the manufacturer shall apply for a new inspection visit.
Follow-up inspections shall take place not less than once a year.

All the questions in this checklist shall be checked at the first inspection visit and at each follow-up

inspection.
A.2.2 Checklist

The items marked with "E" are considered to be of essential importance, i.e. immediate corrective

actions are needed if the requirement is not fulfilled.
The assessment can lead to A-, B- or C-type remarks:
A: an immediate corrective action is needed;
B: corrective action shall be taken within 3 months;
C: corrective action shall be taken before the next inspection visit.

If a B-type remark is not corrected in due time, it becomes an "A" and if a C-type remark is not

corrected in due time, it becomes a "B".
