Concrete - Specification, performance, production and conformity

(1) This European Standard applies to concrete for structures cast in situ, precast structures, and structural precast products for buildings and civil engineering structures.
(2) The concrete under this European Standard can be:
-   normal-weight, heavy-weight and light-weight;
-   mixed on site, ready-mixed or produced in a plant for precast concrete products;
-   compacted or self-compacting to retain no appreciable amount of entrapped air other than entrained air.
(3) This standard specifies requirements for:
-   the constituents of concrete;
-   the properties of fresh and hardened concrete and their verification;
-   the limitations for concrete composition;
-   the specification of concrete;
-   the delivery of fresh concrete;
-   the production control procedures;
-   the conformity criteria and evaluation of conformity.
(4) Other European Standards for specific products e.g. precast products or for processes within the field of the scope of this standard may require or permit deviations.
(5) Additional or different requirements may be given for specific applications in other European Standards, for example:
-   concrete to be used in roads and other trafficked areas (e.g. concrete pavements according to EN 13877-1);
-   special technologies (e.g. sprayed concrete according to EN 14487).
(6) Supplementing requirements or different testing procedures may be specified for specific types of concrete and applications, for example:
-   concrete for massive structures (e.g. dams);
-   dry mixed concrete;
-   concrete with a Dmax of 4 mm or less (mortar);
-   self-compacting concretes (SCC) containing lightweight or heavy-weight aggregates or fibres;
-   concrete with open structure (e. g. pervious concrete for drainage).
(7) This standard does not apply to:
-   aerated concrete;
-   foamed concrete;
-   concrete with density less than 800 kg/m3;
-   refractory concrete.
(8) This standard does not cover health and safety requirements for the protection of workers during production and delivery of concrete.

European foreword

#This document (EN 206:2013+A2:2021) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 104

“Concrete and related products”, the secretariat of which is held by SN.

This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an

identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by September 2021 and conflicting national standards

shall be withdrawn at the latest by September 2021.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

Based on a CEN/BT Decision ( T 42/2013) EN 12620:2013 was withdrawn. Therefore, this document

has been aligned with the specifications given in EN 12620:2002+A1:2008. As soon as CEN/TC 154

publishes a new version of EN 12620, CEN/TC 104 intends to amend EN 206.

This document includes Amendment 1 approved by CEN on 27 July 2016 and Amendment 2 approved

by CEN on 4 January 2021.

The start and finish of text introduced or altered by amendment is indicated in the text by tags !"

and #$.
This document supersedes EN 206:2013+A1:2016.

In particular, the following main items had been subject to revision when preparing EN 206:2013:

a) adding application rules for fibre concrete and concrete with recycled aggregates;

b) revising k-value concept for fly ash and silica fume and adding new rules for ground granulated

blast furnace slag;

c) introduction of principles for the performance concepts for the use of additions, e.g. equivalent

concrete performance concept and equivalent performance of combinations concept;
d) revising and adding new concepts for the conformity assessment;
e) including EN 206-9 “Additional rules for self-compacting concrete (SCC)”;

f) including additional requirements for concrete for special geotechnical works (Annex D).

NOTE Annex D was jointly prepared by CEN/TC 104 and CEN/TC 288.

Amendment 2 are changes deemed necessary to clarify guidance for conformity assessment in clause

10.2 and correcting the status of Annex C to informative.$

Figure 1 illustrates the relationships between EN 206 and standards for design and execution,

standards for constituents and test standards.
