At present, in Europe the members of the European Bitumen Association (Eurobitume) are heavily involved in the current work of CEN TC 19 SC 1 as representatives of the national standards bodies or as observers. The goal of this work is to achieve a set of standards applicable across Europe for bituminous products. Eurobitume strongly supports this CEN process as the best means of achieving technical harmonization in the shortest possible time. The comments here relate to bitumen only. The objective here is to make certain that the bitumen industry manufactures products which are suitable for the purpose being considered and furthermore that any tests and test methods used by the industry and the customer should be simple, easily reproducible, commercially practical and should not exclude products which are suitable for the purpose being considered.
