This document has two parts.
Part 1 specifies four methods for the determination of the vertical water infiltration rate of different types of sports surfacing.
Method A is suitable for measuring the vertical water infiltration rate of synthetic, textile and synthetic turf sports surfaces in the laboratory.
Method B is suitable for on-site measurements of the Vertical Water Infiltration Rate of synthetic, textile, synthetic turf and bound mineral sports surfaces.
Method C is suitable for on-site measurements of the vertical water infiltration rate of natural turf sports surfaces.
Method D is suitable for measuring the for on-site measurements of the vertical water infiltration rate of unbound mineral sports surfaces.
NOTE For filled synthetic turf and unbound mineral surfaces, laboratory tests are considered to give a more precise indication of how a surface will perform.
Part 2 specifies a method for determining the horizontal water flow rate of synthetic, textile and synthetic turf surfaces in the laboratory.

This document specifies three methods for the determination of the tensile properties of materials used as surfaces, elastic layers and shockpads for sports areas.
Method 1 measures the tensile strength of homogenous test specimens that are less than 25 mm in thickness.
Method 2 measures the transversal tensile strength of homogenous test specimens that are more than 25 mm in thickness.
Method 3 measures the tensile strength of sports surfaces or shockpads that are non-homogenous and contain slots or grooves cut into their structure.
This document is applicable both to prefabricated sheet materials and to materials formed by casting of liquid systems cured in-situ.
If the nature of the sports surface is such that a properly representative test piece cannot be prepared in the manner described in this document, then determination of tensile properties should not be attempted for quality control purposes, or as a predictor of performance in use. With such materials, it can be more appropriate to determine their compressive properties or other dynamic characteristics for these purposes.

This document specifies minimum performance and durability requirements for shockpads used within synthetic turf and textile sports surfacing systems.
The document also specifies appropriate performance tolerance for production and on-site quality control procedures.
This document does not cover structural properties of shockpads. Where appropriate, compliance with other European or national standards and guidelines for these aspects should be followed.
NOTE 1 The sports performance characteristics of a sports surfacing system are provided by the combined characteristics of the playing surface, any infill within the playing surface and the shockpad. The selection of the correct combination of each is complex and the responsibility of the sports surface system designer. It is important to take this into account when considering the performance of a shockpad. A shockpad alone is not be expected to satisfy the performance requirements of the complete sports surfacing system as specified in EN 15330-1, E, etc.
NOTE 2 Some forms of innovative shockpad are designed to provide additional functions beyond aiding the provision of the required sports performance properties. Some of these additional functions can, by design, mean that full compliance with all requirements of this document is not appropriate.
NOTE 3 This document only refers to the shockpad. It makes no recommendations on sub-base constructions or the different synthetic turf for needle-punch textile sports surface designs.
NOTE 4 Annex E (informative) can be used in those countries where national guidance or regulations are not available. If such guidance or regulations are available, they supersede Annex E.

This document specifies test methods for measuring the impact attenuation of sports surfaces. Three different methods are specified. In Procedure A, a series of tests are undertaken from differing drop heights and the HIC values are plotted, and the Critical Fall Height determined. In Procedure B, a single test is undertaken from differing drop heights and the HIC values are plotted, and the Critical Fall Height determined. In Procedure C a series of tests are made at a fixed drop height and the maximum value of HIC is calculated.
This test method is primarily intended for use on both natural and synthetic turf sport surfaces. It may be carried out in a laboratory on test specimens or in situ on installed sports surfaces. This test method may not be suitable for sports surfaces covered by EN 14904.

This document describes ways of containing infill materials used in many types of synthetic turf sports fields within the confines of the sports field, so they are not dispersed into the surrounding environment.
The options described are based on examples of best practice identified by members of CEN/TC 217.
This document is intended to be of practical use, to create awareness amongst field designers, venue owners, installation companies and those maintaining synthetic turf sports fields. It is applicable for all forms of synthetic turf sports field, from those used for community activities to those used by professional and elite level athletes.

This European Standard specifies performance and durability characteristics of needle-punched sports surfaces primarily used outdoors. Two categories of surfaces are covered, based on the principal sporting use of the surface, as follows:
-   surfaces designed for multi sports use, and
-   surfaces designed primarily for tennis.
The requirements are intended to apply to surfaces used for community, educational and recreational sport. For professional and elite levels of competition, many sports governing bodies have published their own specifications; the requirements of the sports' governing bodies might differ from those detailed in this European Standard and facility developers are advised to ensure that they select surfaces offering the correct levels of performance for the levels of competition to be played on the pitch or court.
This European Standard is based on type approval testing of products in the laboratory. Selected requirements may also be used on site to assess the suitability of installed surfaces.

This European Standard specifies performance, durability, product identification and facility testing requirements for synthetic turf sports surfaces used primarily outdoors. Five categories of surface are covered, each based on the principal sporting use of the surface, as follows:
-   surfaces designed primarily for hockey;
-   surfaces designed primarily for association football;
-   surfaces designed primarily for rugby union for training purposes;
-   surfaces designed primarily for tennis;
-   surfaces designed for multi-sports use.
The requirements are intended to apply to surfaces used for community, educational and recreational sport. For professional and elite levels of competition, many sports governing bodies have published their own specifications; the requirements of the sports governing bodies might differ from those detailed in this European Standard and facility developers are advised to ensure that they select surfaces offering the correct level of performance for the level of competition played on the pitch or court.
NOTE   Under the Laws of the Game of Rugby Union, surfaces for rugby union matches need to comply with the International Rugby Board’s IRB Regulation 22 and associated performance specification for synthetic turf surfaces.
This European Standard has two parts. The first part describes the requirements for product testing of products in the laboratory to ensure they are capable of providing the required levels of sports performance and player/surface interaction required for their intended use and that they are manufactured from materials of acceptable quality. The second section describes the requirements for installed surfaces to ensure that the sports performance and player/surface interaction of a facility is suitable for the intended use.
Some of the surfaces covered by this European Standard are designed to allow users to wear footwear fitted with studs. An example of a typical stud is given in EN 15306. For the purposes of this European Standard, multi-dimpled shoe profiles often found on footwear used on sand-filled or non-filled synthetic turfs are not considered to be studs.
When independent third party testing of synthetic turf sports surfaces is required to assess compliance with this standard, it is recommended the laboratory is certified to EN ISO/IEC 17025 for the relevant test methods specified in this standard.
