Guide for the Road Administrations Acting in the Standardisation Process

This guide explains the impact on and of the Public Procurement Directive (PPD), European Technical Approvals (ETAs), product standards, design and execution standards, Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR) codes of practice, voluntary quality markings, and the Construction Products Directive (CPD), as well as other Commission Directives. It also provides advice on how to react in certain situations, that is by indicating which initiatives should be promoted, which initiatives should not be supported, and which initiatives should be acted upon. This guide is also a tool for civil servants who have been nominated by their respective national road authorities (NRAs) to act as experts in the standardisation process. It was drawn up on the basis of the principle that such a guide must describe both the standardisation process and the harmonization process.
