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 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 European Standard specifies the requirements for synthetic (polymeric) surfaces (installed in situ and prefabricated) for outdoor sports facilities. It covers synthetic surfaces for the following applications:
-   athletics, track and field;
-   tennis;
-   multi-sports.
The European Standard has two parts. The first describes the requirements for the 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 properties are suitable for the intended use.
When independent third party testing of synthetic 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.
NOTE 1   Examples of types of surface and their fields of application are given in Annex A.
NOTE 2   'Multi-sports' will be defined by appropriate national provisions.
NOTE 3   Minimum requirements for the thickness of the synthetic sports surface are specified which means that this European Standard is not applicable to certain coatings used for sports surfaces.
This European Standard is not designed to cover the performance requirements of top-level athletics facilities; these should follow the requirements of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).
NOTE 4   This European Standard does not include requirements for synthetic turf surfaces; these are specified in EN 15330–1.

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.
